Hi all -
For seizures I have tried zonegran (zongergam I don't know how to spell it) and dilantin. Other meds I have taken or are taking are:
Past - Oxycontin, Neurontin (chronic pain) and
Present - Darvocet, birth control pill, Soma, Xanax (supposed to make me not as anxious and therefore less seizures) and dilantin.
I am a walking pharmacy.
I am planning on starting my Prozac again - as soon as I get it. Have tried all sorts of depression meds to no avail. I had a friend (notice the past tense) that told me that I was just too depressed all the time - maybe I just have a depressive personality? But have never felt this depressed.
Don't want to hurt myself - just don't want to exist.
Last time I went to doc I asked about stopping dilantin - or at least cutting back and was told that if I did that it would make it worse. I know about the Texas laws - to well. I can't drive for 1 year because of DWI and six months after last seizure - that is October 22nd and I am determined not to have a seizure because I can't take not driving anymore - can't even get a job. I need to find a work at home job that is legitimate. Hard to do.
Have had MRIs and all that good stuff - all the say is that "you have had a seizure." Really? And "you have a cyst in your brain" - double really??
Have not lost my grip on reality - I just don't really like reality so much.
Does anyone, or everyone, feel this way also?
P.S. Thank you all for your help - I don't know where to go anymore.
Thanks for the help.
Most people call me dammy.
