... Before surgery I was on 28 pills a day, which included tegretol, topamax, neurontin, and rivitril (rattle, rattle, rattle). Immedialely after surgery I was also put on epilum just to make sure the stress of surgery didn't cause any. I was gradually weaned off all except topamax over 12 months. I have been taking 100mg of that twice a day ever since, as I was still having... (10 replies)
... Eilidh, Thanks for the wishes. I've now got an appointment to see my specialist. I've noticed a weird thing though - the last five days or so the Rivotril does not seem to be working and the simple partial siezures have started again but (fingers crossed) the seizures seem to have stopped!

I also have 3 small kids and it's hard not... (2 replies)
... Depression can cause memory loss. Are you taking meds for your seizures? Some of those meds can make you sleepy and maybe they are contrubiting with the memory loss? I have been on clonazapan for 20 or more years to control epilepsy. The other name for it is rivitril. It makes me a bit sleepy. Get your doctor to test your hormone levels. Sometimse if they are imbalanced it... (4 replies)
