After the a year of not having an seizures, I was allowed to discontinue my medication. This being so long ago, I cannot remember if the doctor said it would be something I actually grew out of, or if it just went dormant and it never goes away. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this situation. Because, the other day I thought that I had had a seizure, and it has been 7 years since I've gone off medication. Help? Answered by Sharika Quilantang 11 months ago.
They say you can "outgrow" epilepsy during puberty. For some people, it really is a childhood thing. I started having seizures when I was 9, went on meds when I was 10. When I was 15 they took me off meds in hopes that it was "childhood epilepsy". About six months later I had a seizure, so I got back on meds and now I'm a lifer. My husband had seizures for a year as a teenager, and never had them again. On the other hand..... People who have a seizure disorder have a lower threshold that their body can handle. In other words, ALL people can have seizures, but for most it takes a drug overdose or head injury to make one happen. For someone with a disorder, and therefore a lower threshold, it could merely be stress, a fever, a food allergy, or a strobe light that causes it. My son had febrile seizures as a toddler. (I had those as a toddler, too.) The doctor said while it certainly doesn't GUARANTEE that he'll have a seizure disorder when he gets older, it does mean that his threshold is lower than most people's, so there is a good chance of it. In other words, I think you truly can "outgrow" epilepsy. But, you also have a lower threshold than most people do, and I think that lower threshold will stick with you for life.

If only! I had febrible convulsions as a child, I then went on to have grandmal seizures from 15-20 and then at 25 I was diagnosed with TLE, partial seizures, although for some time they thought I just had migraine aura. I spoke to my neuro as to possible causes of this happening at this time in my life and she said that your epilepsy can infact lie dormant for many years and then go through and active period. I hope it goes to sleep on us all soon! Answered by Emmitt Wheeland 11 months ago.
Its difficult to answer your questionion as everycase is different.Most doctors recommend continous medication.But people who lead a normal 9 to 5 life,no outside travel,or driving can afford to take a risk and discontinue medication, but there seems no guarantee one wont get a seizure again. I am on medication for the last 19 years, as I have to work,travel,drive and cant afford to take the risk of not taking the medication.I had many attacks in my teens.If however you have a hangover like headache now and then its better to continue the medication.I havent had a seizure since I have the medication,but the medicine I take [Eptoin] creates other problems,but then one has to live and at times live for others!

Asked by Yajaira Goggans 11 months ago.
Please note that this list is only partial - there now appear to be at least 70 meds which can cause DILE or DIL, drug-induced Lupus Erythematosis Atenolol (Tenormin) Captopril (Capoten) Carbamazepine Chlorpromazine HCl (Thorazine) Clonidine HCl (Catapres) Danazol (Danocrine) Diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren) Disopyramide (Norpace) Ethosuximide (Zarontin) Gold compounds Griseofulvin Hydralazine HCl (Apresoline) Ibuprofen Interferon alfa Isoniazid (Laniazid, Nydrazid) Labetalol HCl (Normodyne, Trandate) Leuprolide acetate (Lupron) Levodopa (Dopar, Larodopa) Lithium carbonate Lovastatin (Mevacor) Mephenytoin (Mesantoin) Methyldopa (Aldomet) Methysergide maleate (Sansert) Minoxidil (Loniten, Rogaine) Nalidixic acid (NegGram) Nitrofurantoin (Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin) Oral contraceptives Penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen) Penicillin Phenelzine sulfate (Nardil) Phenytoin sodium (Dilantin) Prazosin (Minipress) Primidone (Mysoline) Procainamide HCl (Procan, Pronestyl) Promethazine HCl (Anergan, Phenergan) Propylthiouracil Psoralen Quinidine Spironolactone (Aldactone) Streptomycin sulfate Sulindac (Clinoril) Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine) Tetracycline Thioridazine HCl (Mellaril) Timolol maleate (Betimol, Timoptic) Tolazamide (Tolinase) Tolmetin sodium (Tolectin) Trimethadione (Tridione) One thing I happened to notice is that several meds used to treat Parkinson's disease are in this list. And the problem is that although Lupus is not curable, in DILE, the symptoms are reversible once the medications are discontinued. Of course in PD, that might not be possible, The most common problems are caused by only a handful of the above. Answered by Jeanene Ginolfi 11 months ago.

You have 3 choices. either read the entire information that came with your pills or call your pharmacy and ask them if it is okay to take a certain med or pills while on birth control. You can also go online, look up your pills and see what it says you can not take with them. I take few medicines and it says I can not eat or drink grapefruit (which I don't like anyway).

I now see Lamictal is primarily used to treat mental health issues-- so if you are on Lamictal, do you think it makes you more hyper/crazy like this too, or am I just imagining this? Answered by Sunni Okorududu 11 months ago.
My daughter has the same diagnosis. She is 5 and now controlled with Zarontin and Depakote. She had an allergic reaction to Lamictal so was not on it long enough to tell. However, she has been on these seizure drugs since she was 3 and she is very hyperactive. I even had her on Focalin for ADHD until I went in for a third neurolgist opinion and he told me to take her off. He said that these drugs tend to cause the hyperactivity. Good luck, I know its difficult. Answered by Johnette Barra 11 months ago.
I am taking Lamictal for Bi-polar disorder, as a mood stabilizer; but it is more on the, fix the depression side, than fix the manic side. Different people react differently and take it for different reasons. It also took more than a month to feel any change. So yes its makes me a little more up than down. I am also almost 30 and I take 500 mg. Answered by Stefan Brander 11 months ago.
Some medications work very differently on children and adults, particularly where side effects are concerned. That said, I've been on Lamictal for a few years and I've found it to be more mind-numbing than stimulating. In fact, I've recently lowered my dose significantly due to that.

My daughter (9 years old) was diagnosed with Absence seizures a few months ago. She was having several hundred a day, so she was placed on Zarontin for them. A few months later she developed a rash that would go away then come back in another place. We stopped the medication to see if it was from the med. It didn't fade, so we were told she was allergic to something else, and we continued with the med. A couple of weeks ago, she was at her fathers house (joint custody-he gets the summer), and her fingers and toes turned blue, then purple. After testing, the doctor there (Texas) told me she has Lupus, but it could be a result of the Zarontin, so he took her off of that and prescribed Depakote.He said he'll test her again to see if it's gone in two weeks. Anyone experience this before? Can anyone tell me something to advise me what to do in the mean time? Any input at all would be greatly appreciated! Answered by Julianna Bussert 11 months ago.
There are four types of lupus: cutaneous or discoid, systemic, neonatal, and drug induced. Yes, some medications can cause lupus. In those cases, the lupus goes away some time after the offending drug is withdrawn. The fingers and toes issue is probably Raynaud's syndrome which often accompanies lupus. I have both. If this was my child, I would take her to a pediatric rheumatologist. Lupus is a complicated condition. It can affect the central and peripheral nervous systems. Get copies of all tests and notes that the doctors make and start a file. It will be up to you to make sure all of your daughter's doctors are on the same page. Each time I see one of my doctors, I fax all results to the others. Bring a list of questions with you to her appointments. Put them in priority order. Take notes. Make sure you understand what the doctors are saying by repeating it back in your own words. You have my prayers. Answered by Jae Neske 11 months ago.
Yes, there is a disease called Drug Induced Lupus (DIL). It almost always resolves after the offending medications are stopped. Seizures can be difficult with children. Hopefully the Depakote works...Valporic Acid is another alternative should the Depakote not work. One issue to remember with anti seizure meds, they can cause reproductive issues. Make sure you discuss this with your doctor. Answered by Raymonde Rotkowski 11 months ago.

As for cumming I say I rather do it by myself, true I have to do it this way since the rubbing does not cause me anything. I know it is late but I wish to know sexual pleasure at least once.
