Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself.  I'm Tori.  I had a grandmal seizure in 2001 after a head concussion and from there started havng partial seizures.  The doctor thinks that I will continue to have them the rest of my life without the medicine that I am on.  I am taking Topamax.  That is taking care of the seizures but it does a number on my concentration.  It's like I have to go over and over something in my head to finally comprehend it.  I hate the way it makes me feel too.  I'm tired all the time.  Does this make anyone else feel like this? 
 
Thanks for listening!
Tori

Hi Jennifer:
I've been taking Topamax 100mg 2x a day for over 3 years now. I've been told that if I would try something else that there is a chance it could throw me into another seizure. I'm afraid to try anything else. What I am not so sure about is could it be the medicine or just the fact that I have had a seizure causing me not to be able to comprehend things as I once did. Its hard to try to figure these things out and when you try to talk to others that haven't gone through this they just look at you like you are either crazy or poor little old you and I hate that.

I see my family doctor and get my medicine there now for I do not have medicial insurance. I haven't been able to see my neurologist since I was put on Topamax, but the Topamax has helped me more than anything else that they have given me.

Thanks again for listening.....Tori
