Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 months ago):
Increased citrolopram dose to 30 mg developed rash in Thursday.
Increased symptoms of depression with increased dosage.
From this study (10 months ago):
menstrual problems could be simply because of age (51).
From this study (1 year ago):
Diagnosed at age 6....Controlled until the last 5 years (2 status epilepticus).
Better now but having a complex partial every couple months. Coming off Vimpat
as the half life being so short caused problems along with other side effects.
Ramping up on Lamotrigine....now at 350mg total. Just experienced a dull stomach discomfort for several days and bloody stools when increasing to 350mg.
Also was taking alot of aspirin the last few weeks as I bruised my ribs during a fall on the lip of the bathroom tab while experiencing a complex partial. Could the bloody stools and stomach discomfort be caused by either the aspirin or the Lamotrigine?
I am presently attempting to improve my beakthrough seizure rate or eliminate them all together through my care at Vanderbilt. If not I am looking at a resection (anterior temporal lobe).
Carbamazazepine - 800mg
Zonisamide - 600mg
Lamotrigine - 350mg (ramping up)
