Hello, I am new on this chat room.  Hello to all.  I am 62 years old.  I have always had seizures, but haven't had any alot until the last month when I had a series of about 16, one behind the other.  Was hospitalized and put on Topamax.  This drug made me crazy.  Could not remember anything.  Not even my husbands name.  They took me off that drug and put me on Zonagran and now I am having outbursts of anger.  This is out of the ordinary for me.  I am a happy go lucky type person.  Type A personality, but usually not cursing out everyone like I have been since on this drug.  Feel weird.  I take 200 mg. at night.  Feel sleepy up until about 7:00 at night and then I began to feel better and it is time to take it again.  Has anyone felt this with this drug or do I just need to get adjusted?  Help and thanks.  Oh incidently, have had a couple of seizures since on this drug, but that is all.  Seems like exposure to light and stress causes it.
 
Edited to add title so others would see it smurf

Thanks, I will re-contact my Neurologist and see if there is another something she can place me on. I tried Topamax and it made me crazier. I couldn't even remember my own name taking that stuff and they tapered me off and started me on the zonagran. I have a daughter in law that takes carbatrol. She is doing well with it, but it makes her slow(I guess, or she is naturally slow). I am, as previously stated a type A person. Got to get it done right now. No tomorrow. If anyone can relate. Thanks so much for your input. I will make contact with my neurologist. My husband wants me to drop the drug altogether and go to the health food store, but I am really having trouble with that. Just a whole lot of decisions and opinions being thrown out, if you know what I mean by family and friends here. But I will take your advice, I believe there is another something that will be better suited for me. Thanks again. Gospelmusiclady I will keep in touch
