Common Questions and Answers about Seizure medications names of


Avatar n tn I cannot think of simple words or remember people's names that I do business with regularly. Do you feel that it is a combination of the meds or just one, that would contribute to a complete lapse of memory? Also, at 41, and after 8 years, is there anything I can do to rehabilitate? I do remember that the doctor told me that the damage was in the front/left of my brain...the area for emotions. I don't know if that will be helpful to you.
Avatar n tn Sometimes seizures become resistant to a medication for reasons we do not know - in that case there are many other seizure medications that can be tried that may be effective.
Avatar f tn Since you have it since childhood, it can either be a congenital heart condition like a leaking valve or something similar. Compression of cervical spinal nerves is another possibility. It can also be some type of epilepsy or seizure. Please discuss these possibilities with a doctor who is treating you. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
1653487 tn?1303527762 I just recently had my first (that I am aware of) seizure at 35 years of age... My husband witnessed the episode but I have no memory of it happening. This happened in my sleep this past Sunday night (March 27th)... After two days in the hospital and the plethora of tests, the MRI came back normal but the EEG showed abnormalities in the back right lobe of my brain. I was placed on an anti-seizure medication - Keppra 1000mg and told that I can not drive for at least 6 months...
Avatar f tn the EEG would of shown all the abnormal neural activity happening at that time, it shouldn't of been normal if what your experiencing is seizure related. That's not to say what your experiencing isn't happening, just that if you experienced it during the test and the test was normal it's unlikely neurologically caused...
Avatar m tn INVEST in a GRIND GAURD they are known by many names but essentually it stops you damaging your teeth by grinding and will reduce the Facial pain and teeth pain it is important to keep it Very Clean Mouthwash and denture Cleaner is Good . you have a list of Drug in the Anti seizure class that do many things other than Epileptic treatment . I am having a Gamaknife Surgury some time soon But I have TH Neuropathy The Lower Gum branch was severed in an Accident .
Avatar f tn Sugar levels could be related to other factors such as infections, medications etc and each of these would need to be controlled before the levels stabilize. These can be difficult to control at times and it is good that she is under constant medical care atleast till the levels stabilize. It would be best to discuss the situation and the appropriate management plan in detail with her treating doctor. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn When we got in the car he kept asking where we were going. When we got there he looked lost and didn't know any of his teachers names even though he had these teachers last year and the year before. Another time we were getting ready to go some where and I told him to go get in the car when I got out there he was a half a block away, When I caught up to him he didn't know where he was going or why he was walking.
Avatar m tn Shrinkage of the Cerebellum, which I understand can cause issues with balance! Has anyone been through this before? I have not tolerated other meds well in past attempts to change to "newer" meds, and I'm being told I may HAVE to get off Dilantin. This may mean I will not have as good seizure control. Are these my only alternatives? Please help!
Avatar f tn I have had a biopsy done which confirmed the diagnosis but since I'm allergic to a lot of medications the only thing I'm allowed to use is dermovate. If the burning inside is intense, I usually put some plain greek yoghurt on a tampon and leave it in for a wee while. It gives a lot of relief at the time but sadly the burning starts again quickly once the tampon is removed.I have regular bouts of thrush and this usually makes the condition a lot worse.
147426 tn?1317269232 At least I was never accused of being neurotic or anything of that like. I was dismissed to rheumy and endocrinology, who both declared that this is neurological not their specialty. Also sent to rule out seizures. Been temporarily dx'd with migraine assoc vertigo and parkinson's associated dyskinesia. I did see a 3rd neuro, whose first question was "have you always been fat?" - that was also her last. Tried to see 2 who would not even see me without being already Dx'd.
1684282 tn?1582660848 feature=related Since the original procedure was used on addicted soldiers in Israeli army, it has been gradually perfected by new medications that have since been approved by FDA to help control the effects of the withdrawal. The detoxification drug treatment procedure involves administering intravenous medications that remove opiates from the opioid receptors while the patient is sedated. The detox is done under anesthesia to avoid extreme discomfort and pain from opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar n tn Hi I wanted to let you know that there is a website that helps chronic pain patients find suitable pain management clinics that do agree there is no need for people to suffer needlessly when there are tons of different medications out there for you as long as you have a legitimate problem which I know you do ( I have read almost every post on here and have read yours as well) try this web site for help and support.
Avatar n tn I was really hoping for a suggestion as to why I may have developed an indentation in the top of my head. At first I thought I was crazy, and that it was impossible for that to happen, but over the last few months it seems to have grown and now anyone who feels the top of my head can easily feel it.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to suffer a brain 'injury', which causes paranoid/fearful symptoms and insomnia? Or is it possible for this just to start up for no reason. I have these 'episodes' of extreme fearfulness and feelings of impending doom. They last for anything from one hour to five hours. I feel completely terrified. Completely stricken. It is as if the worst thing in the world is going to happen to me, or the world. This is nothing like a 'panic' attack - it goes way beyond that.
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realiizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
429155 tn?1205676864 I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
Avatar n tn My mother wasn't for putting me on medications; she was afraid of the damage it would place on my liver. I was extremely young when I was diagnosed by the way. Growing up I was an amazing athlete with lots of drive, I played soccer, in addition to always party with my friends. I was also a great student; I practiced cognitive behavioral therapy, at the University of Pennsylvania, which promoted a Holistic approach of looking at typical disorders that children are labeled with.
Avatar f tn I just remember how happy we were to get our little boy off of seizure meds after years of horrible seizures and all the bad side effects he's just now overcoming from the meds (including liver and kidney problems)... I can't imagine anyone actually wanting to take them, weightloss or not. I mean, after all, they're for nerve blocking in the brain and can really change things (sometimes for the worse). Really, honestly.... just curious.
Avatar m tn the other day i told some of my family and my aunt said that the family had a history of mini seizurs but no one else in the family said anything so not sure she had a few of them some time back and when ppl talk to her sometimes she doesnt know what they are saying she can hear them but its like they are talking in another language
Avatar f tn Brand names for this medication: Sinequan®, Zonalon®. I don't but that is because I have other medical issues that prevent me from being able to take medications that might help me.
604197 tn?1292308636 Hello, I'm 17 years of age and recently (2 months ago) had an accident that has resulted in the loss of my sense of smell and taste. I was at a lake, swinging on a rope into the water but lost my grip and wnet head first down a cliff of rocks and roots. I landed in the water but had hit the back of my head (near the crown, at the top) splitting my head open and fracturing my skull (3-4 inches).
Avatar f tn I am married and my husband have been very supportive but I do know it's putting a strain on both of us. We even moved out of our house thinking that there was mold or something and that's what was making me sick. But my symptoms never improved. If you have any information for me, I would really appreciate it. One last thing... in May 2013 I had quit birth control after being on it for about 7 years.
Avatar n tn I'm still trying to get of Zanax without having a seizure (I've had 3 now), so I'm no AA poster boy. Good luck to you both.
Avatar n tn I hope this info helps you. Go ahead and take my muscle names with you. Google Trigger Point of the head and see if you can find a picture of the skull. I stop by a book store and look in the medical or alternative medicine area.
Avatar n tn It sounds like some kind of infection or something with the fevers all the time, leg cramps could be a sign of alot of things and the symptom may not even be related. Search all you can! Good luck.
Avatar n tn 4, Img, Western Blot, leplosporidia,and a couple others that I can't remember the names of. All normal with the exception being that my thyroid meds are a little too strong, dry eyes based on the Schirmers test and some slight BPPV (benign positional nystagmus), which no one is concerned about. I've been to an optometrist when this began in mid Nov., two ophthalmologists, a neuro-ophthalmologist with the UT system in Dallas, two neurologists, two ENTs and my PCP! I'm sooo frustrated!
451975 tn?1372332199 Continue with the medications,physical therapy and counselling as these are beneficial. Also you may be open to other forms of alternative medical therapy like acupuncture and reiki (japanese hand or palm healing) which has been used by several physicians to complement medical therapy.
Avatar n tn That is not a huge dose, but if you stop it abruptly you will have some significant insomnia for a few weeks, and maybe some anxiety as well. In general, benzodiazepines (medications that include valium, xanax, ativan... or using generic names, diazepam, alprazolam, and lorazepam, respectively. And Klonopin, or clonazepam) should be tapered and not stopped abruptly. They have a withdrawal syndrome similar to alcohol, and can cause 'DTs' including seizures that can even be fatal.
Avatar n tn In these cases the cause cannot be identified. Oftentimes there is a family history of epilepsy. The majority of children with epilepsy have idiopathic seizures. Events that may be mistaken for seizure activity. Not everything that looks like a seizure is a seizure. There are many psychiatric and medical problems that can result in a sudden alteration in consciousness.
