  • Citalopram seizures in my 13 year old daughter
    My daughter just turned 13. Her Father died last year and she was having trouble dealing with it so her doctor put her on 20 mil of citalopram once a day. She started feeling better in about a week. About 30 days later she had a severe seizure and quit breathing. I did CPR and got her breathing again and the paramedics took her to the hospital. After an MRI and EEG they sent her home and said keep an eye on her. She had about 6 seizures all together. I wouldn't let her out of my sight. Finally on her last trip to the hospital after having a seizure I again asked could it be the meds and the ER doc said yes so we took her off of it and no more seizures. It's been 4 weeks now and I'm hopeful that we found the problem. My daughter had never had any health problems... Be very careful what kind of meds you put your children on. Thank God she was home with me that night.
  • Topamax side affects
    I have taken Topamax for 14 years. A few months after starting I had difficulty speaking. My specialist said it would improve. It did... Enough to get by.
    3 years later I got Encephalitus and was hospitalised.
    It took a year to walk normally again.
    A year later I began experiencing MS-like symptoms. Nerve pain shooting down my legs, numbness and weakness in limbs. Needed to use a walking stick.
    . I had tests for brain tumours, none to be found luckily. Then more spinal taps for possible MS. Nothing. So the experts put to down to my possible neuroticism.
    I became depressed.
    Took medication for anxiety/depression.
    Discovered I had periphal neuropathy. (Damaged nerves)
    Lost my job last year due to memory loss.

    Just recently discovered these side affects are common on Topamax and the lawsuit. I am currently reducing this medication slowly and taking Taurine, calcium and magnesium to help get my life back.
  • Epilepsy and depression drug side effects (2 responses)
    42yo male having infrequent seizures since he was 19yo.

    Was recently placed on Neurontin and Topamax after a single seizure. This combination of meds appeared to increase the frequency of seizures ( from 1 every few years unmedicated, to 1 every month ). Dosage being increased after each seizure. No seizure control achieved.

    Changed Neurologist, had a 48hr EEG and was changed to Sodium Valproate.

    Have not had a Tonic Clinic seizure since. Suffer myoclnic seizures every day, Lamotrogine and Lacitimal? and Topamx introduced to try a stop the myoclonus... Lamotrogine made them far worse and dizzyness caused by Lacitimal was un-bearable even at very small dose.



    Over the last 3yrs I have noticed and my family even commented on my changed personality - from a care free to someone that is easily aggitated and angry...even when I know things like young children being noisey etc shouldn't make me snap, they do... I know its wrong, but can't help myself... and then hate myself for being so "short" or intolerant of petty things.



    My weight increased by 30kg with 4 months... more than 40% increase in weight.

    My hair just falling out, by the 1000's every day... my bike helmet is full of hair and when washing, hair is visible in the shampoo bubbles.



    My gums bleed very easily and they no longer grow up around the base of my teeth - they seem to be retracting away ( believe this message s called attrophy ).



    Have researched quite extensively to see the likely hood of all these medical problem I have now being associated with the medications I take for my primary condition ( epilepsy ).. And given the frequency of seizure off medication is every few years, seeking advice from or to hear from anyone with similar conditions about how they addressed them and if they remained on the medications.



    From this web site, all my symptoms seems to affect a very low % of people taking the meds... am I trying to link medical concerns to the medications unjustly... the likely hood of suffering all these side effects is extremely remote when most affect only 2 or 3 in100 people.



    ( likely hood of suffering all 5 conditions = approx 1 in 40,000,000

    - more likey to be hypercondriact aren't I?
