Hello, My name is Candace and I am 23. I had my first seizure at the age of 20, right out of the blue and the doctors don't know why! I have had two grand mal seizures and one mild one that affected my face only. This is very scary and they seem so violent. I am always on edge and always scared. I have been on Dilantin for almost four years and as long as I take my medication faithfully I am seizure free.
I have heard a lot of bad things about being on dilantin and getting pregnate. Anyone with any experience? I am so scared to come off my medication.
Any suggestion would be great!
I never new how many people have epilepsy.
