  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
  • Depakote er affected by grapefruit
    I have taken Depakote ER for since 2005 for epilepsy. Once stabilized many years ago seizures and auras have not been bothering me. Until I recently ate three grapefruits over three days. After a few days, when the grapefruit cleared my system, the seizures and auras ceased. Therefore, grapefruit does affect how Depakote ER acts on your system.
  • Mucinex dm caused balance problems
    I bought Mucinex Dm to treat mild symptoms of sore throat and cough. I was following the instructions precisely of the time and the dosages needed. After two days in taking the medication I started to experience balance problems. Suddenly I would feel unsteady and dizzy, and had the feeling that I was falling down. Change in position of the head would trigger the symptoms even when I was in bed. Because my balance problems occurred after I started taking Mucinex I decided to stop the medication. It has been one week since I discontinued the medication and I feel slow improvement. If the symptoms do not stop completely I will make an appointment with a doctor. This was my first time to use Mucinex, but will never ever use this medication.
