I have been experiencing seizures since about 6 months after getting a Mirena IUD. My neurologist says it isn't likely from the IUD; however, I've never had seizures before nor is there any history of such in my family. Anyone else out there?
I take a generic of FLOMAX called: Tamsulosin. When I took two 0.4MG pills I noticed Complex partial seizures. I only take one pill now, and don't notice complex seizures, but still wonder if it is increasing my other partial seizures that are not completely controlled?
