I am new here. I am 30 years old and suffer from epilesy, depression, PCOS and insulin resistancy.
Well now my question for all you members that take epilim.
I was diagnosed with Grand mal when i was about 13. was on phenobarbital till i was 18 and had sizures. Then the neurologist changed my medication to Epilim and since then i am sizure free.
Well i am taking it for 12 years now and would like to go off, but the doctors just tell me if i am sizure free i should be happy.
The thing is the side effects are getting to me. I personally beleive that the deperession, PCOS and insulin resistancy is from the epilim.
Does anybody here have simular sideeffects or is it just in my head.
I did some research and there are studies that show that PCOS and insulin resistacy occures more in women that take epilim.
Advice will be greatly appriciated.
Cymbalta 60 mg .... Is there hope....
