Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
- Does topamax effect sexual desire and cause weight gain (2 answers)
I have taken topamax for 10 years and have been gaining weight steadily every year. My doctor says the medication is not the reason because Topamax causes people to loose weight. I have also voiced my concerns to him that since I started taking this medication I have no desire for sex. He says this medication would not affect this. Please help so I can get him to change my medication.
- Does carbamazepine cause obesity?? please reply (1 answer)
I am taking ZEN 100(Carbamazepine tablets) on advice of my doctor from JAN 2013, for my SEIZURES. Lately, my weight has increased by quite kilos, despite my diet remaining same.
I want to confirm does prolonged use of this drug cause obesity.
PLEASE REPLY IF EXPERIENCED THE SAME SIDE-EFFECTS OR KNOW ABOUT IT.
- Has anything helped with muscle weakness/pain caused by carbamazepine? or any remedies?
I have partial seizures that affects my right side. It's caused by having a brain tumor on the left side when I was younger that was removed. I'm taking 600mg of Carbamazepine a day.
I have muscle weakness and pain on my right arm and leg a lot. There are times when I can't even pick up a water bottle with my right hand without feeling like I'm going to drop it. The pain almost feels like growing pains but I stopped growing 4 years ago.
Has anyone had this and figured out things that helped like pain relievers, heat, cold, anything? Right now I just rest but it'd be nice to have something to actually help with the pain.
- I stopped suffering from psoriasis when i started with epilepsy at the age of 32. could there be a reason for this?
I would just like to hear from anyone who has both epilepsy and psoriasis to see if they have stopped with psoriasis after the epilepsy was triggered. My epilepsy was triggered at the age of 32 after taking amphetamine. I used to have outbreaks of psoriasis every 7 years but this stopped when the epilepsy was triggered. I wonder if there is a reason for this.

- 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.

From this study (3 years ago):
Tegretol was added to control focal seizures, but breakthrough seizures began more frequently
From this study (3 years ago):
Just want to see if I should ask my doc about changing to Vimpat from Carbatrol. Carbatrol sounds like it has way too many side effcts for me......like diarrhea and sleep problems which I have.
schrodinger on Oct, 4, 2011:
I took carbamezapine (brand name Tegretol) and had CNS/ auditory disturbance... ototoxicity. Was unstable in balance, and almost lost my hearing. As a musician and radio operator, this was TOTALLY unacceptable, and the loss of balance was unsafe. Had to discontinue and can never take this drug again.
