I have had epilepsy since i was a young child. i also have had to battle substance abuse disorder all of my life! i already know that certain drugs can aggravate epilepsy/ cause seizures- but does epilepsy CAUSE drug addiction? is drug addiction more prevalent in epileptics?

I just started treatment for MGN (Kidney disease) taking Cyclosporine and Prednisone. I am having low back pain and was wondering if this pain will go away once my body gets adjusted to meds. Thank you to everyone that responds.
I've been on Victoza for about a week. Now I'm having lower back pain. At first I thought it was muscular, maybe somehow tweaked my back, but this feels different. Intense. I'm stopping it as of today and see if I get better. As of now nothing is helping. :(
