  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I have a history of anxiety dating back to childhood. I experienced normal grief reactions and depressive episodes throughout my teenage years, twenties, and thirties. I was diagnosed with a benign meningioma in my left frontal lobe in May, 1998. I was placed on an SSRI, Zoloft, following brain surgery to remove this tumor from my left temporal lobe in 1998. The surgery produced emotional instability, cognitive deficits, seizures, and depression. My SSRI was changed to Lexapro by a random psychiatrist around 2002 - 2003 and I have been taking Lexapro since. Prior to brain surgery (1998), I had no history of seizures or depression (only circumstantial depression throughout my life). I began to experience mild cognitive deficits, headache, and speech impairment leading up to diagnosis. Following surgery, I was placed on Dilantin and suffered a tonic clonic seizure approximately 1 year post-surgery. Following that, I used step therapy in attempting the following medications and substitutions: Topamax, Keppra, Lyrica, and Tegretol. My neurologist made a decision to treat me with Topamax, starting out at 400mg, in 1999. Topamax controlled most of my seizures and when medications were changed/altered, I had tonic clonic seizures. I stayed on Topamax until present, tapered down to 50mg at present. My current neurologist added Lamictal in 2007 due to worsening of my seizure disorder and frequency. Seizures were decreased and better controlled since beginning adjunct therapy. In 2007, I was placed on Clonazepam, 5mg, for seizure control. I have been taking all four medications since: Topamax, 50mg; Lamictal, 200mg; Clonazepam, 0.5mg; and Lexapro, 10mg. I have symptoms that are associated with Frontal Lobe Disorder and my memory (short and long term) are worsening with time. My speech impairment and difficulty with word recall seems to be worsening. I am hoping that my medications can be changed and/or adjusted to improve the adverse symptoms that I am suffering from day to day. I don't know what medication is causing what, and what medication can be tapered and/or withdrawn without causing generalized seizures.
