On Mar, 6, 2015: 20 females aged 49 (±5) who take Lamictal, Keppra, Clonazepam are studied

Lamictal, Keppra, Clonazepam outcomes

Information of the patient in this study:

Age: 49

Gender: female

Comments from or about the patient: I am 49 years old. Can the long term effects of Lamictal, Keppra, Clonazepam cause fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, and neuropathy? I used to take Tegretol for over 20 years and Dilantin (for 7 years starting at age 9. Could Dilantin and Tegretol have caused these problems?
