As of late December I will I will have had epilepsy for 2 years and we(my doctor and I) have not been able to get my seizures under control all of the way. My doctor has tried has me on me on the 4th differnt medicine. Right now I am on 3 different seizure meds. So next week I am going to wee a epitologist. I am not totally sure what to expect. Is this going to be just like a neuologist visit just longer and a lot more in detail? Also is there anything that you guys would recommend that I bring with me? I have already had my records sent. So I have that done.
Have any of you been on Topamax? What have you done to deal with the side effects? I have having consternation probrams problems. Which is getting better as I am getting to a lower dose. I got to high for my body to handle:( Also have any of you had problems of just forgetting things or have a hard time remembering things that you knew before you stared to take it? I am in college right now so my memory is especially important to me. I am trying to keep it all together. Last fall I had to go home mid-semester. So I was unable to finish my classes so this fall I feel like there is a little extra pressure on me to stay even though things things started to get a little out of control againl But last fall I had some grand Mals!! I have now been grand mal seizure free for a year which is really good but I am still have some twitches. And they some of them are big enough to drop things and to almost fall down. So my doctor wants things to get things all the way calmed down and I also have the "spaceing out" kind. So their is still some work. So I hope the doctor has some answers. Or knows what I should do next and I hope that it does not interfere with school.
