... Soul, I'm not a doctor but here is my opinion. If you take the symptoms you mentioned and post them on the OCD or panic/anxiety message boards, you will find a lot of people who have the same exact symptoms you've had. I'm one of those people. I was MISDIAGNOSED as having epilepsy when in fact I don't. I have weird thoughts that come from no where, depersonalization... (7 replies)

... Lamictal is not one of the drugs that Drs are most concerned about with being pregnant, Tegretol is though. Which scares me. I've been on Lamictal for 6 years now and has worked amazingly. I never had the rash or any bad side effects from it. ... (6 replies)
... I had trouble coming off Tegretol, with things seeming to be more important (and making me agitated) than they were, and realizing that my reactions were off. Starting it, I've had problems with slurred speech, unsteady gait, fatigue, etc. A lot of that goes away eventually, as I get used to the dosage. Wellbutrin caused my aunt to have a seizure, when she'd never had them... (16 replies)
... Hi, I was on prozac for a few years,and did not see any difference in the amount of seizures I was having around that time of the month was still the only time for seizures for me.

... I wouldn't trust a guy who couldn't cry- good for you- but sorry it's causing you distress....have you changed meds lately? I got very emotional when coming off Tegretol one time (back on it now), and was a slobbering idiot at work over stuff that didn't require such a reaction. And, when I 'd have a run of seizures, and had memory gaps, or when I think about how my life... (3 replies)
... Topomax is a wonderful drug but it is expensive. I was switched from Depakote to Topomax without problem, if you do it slow enough. It takes some time so don't get anxious and follow what your doctor tells you to do and DO NOT mess with this or it could be disasterous. Good Luck to you, I think you'll enjoy Topomax I do.

... Thanks for your input. Now that you mention it I too was like that. How long and how was the switch made? (4 replies)
... My only major problem was being an emotional wreck- stupid things were major ordeals, then I'd bawl because I knew I was overreacting, stuff like that- I was on other meds, so the seizures weren't effected at that time. Mostly it was just not reacting to things like I normally do. (4 replies)
