Nothing on the MRI and EEG,  it appears to be normal.
I'm really starting to doubt myself,  up to 900mg on the Trileptal on  my way to 1200 which will be my final dosage. Just two days ago and I'm still having seizures, I'm really stuck in doubt and confusion. I don't believe that these could be Non- epileptic,  but I'm at a loss, My seizures are coming right after I take at 7-8am, which is about an hour after I take 300mg in the morning or at 7 pm which is again about an hour after I take it again in the evening.
I have bought an automatic blood pressure machine and it is elevated when I feel my aura coming on, 150/96, still at a loss. full of doubt.
I did not have any abnormal brain waves during my EEG I was told yesterday, Ididn't have a seizure while I was wearing it either.
Thanks again for listening,

Hi Troy,
MIgranes can definately cause seizures... its not uncommon for it to happen. What I would do, is see a doctor and get some decent migrane tablets that you can take.

thank you for your reply.
Well my blood pressure got up to 150/126.
So they put me on blood pressure meds. I know this is all together.
Had to stop taking the trileptal at 6PM,  was making me so tired, I couldn't enjoy my evening with my family.
Going for a 4 day video/EEG observation. hope it helps

Another Day

Do they have you on Topamax as one of your seizure medications?  I used to take Imitrex quite often for migraines and it does work well.  Topamax is also used to treat migraines.  I rarely have a migraine now. 
When my neurologist was changing around some of my medications, I told him I wanted to stay on the Topamax because it had helped my migraines so much.
Just something for you to think about.
Take care!
