  • How do gilenya and sodium volprate interact?
    I have been diagnosed with RRMS after suffering several seizures.I am currently on sodium volprate for the seizures.I have been given a steroid infusion treatment to stabilize the MS and have good blood test results to soon begin using Gilenya.My specialist and MS nurse are very highly regarded and don't think there will be any issues.In fact there could be a slim chance of being off the epilum in a year if the gilenya does the job.I have great faith in them,but I'm just wondering if there is anything I should be expecting.Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.
  • Is dyspraxia linked to taking epilium at the age of 9 months to 2 years of age
    Is there a link to dyspraxia and attention deficit caused as a side effect of taking sodium valproate from the age of 9months to 2years old. My son who is now 27 still struggles with every day tasks but we were never told about potential long term damage this drug may cause - we assumed his condition was caused through convulsions and/or just that he had been born dyspraxic. He was started on rpilum following a prolonged seizure, initially they thought it he had epilepsy but later decided this wasn't the case. His last fit was at the age of 2. He hasn't suffered any since. I would interested to know if there is a link
  • Why would my doc change me from epilim to lamotrigine, as i have not had a fit for over 2 years on epilim?

  • Pristiq, epilim, sifrol, immovane, valium, mobic
    I started out with mild burnout depression in 2009 and was put on a low dose of Lexapro, which picked me up fantastically. I had been given low (2mg) Valium before for muscle relaxant purposes due to my scoliosis complications. Both these worked well. Then in 2010 I was drugged and raped and almost suffocated by my flatmate. I plummeted after 3 days of numb shock, into the deep dark abyss of major depression, and became fearful about everything. I couldn't enter a shop if there was a queue of men in there for example. Finding myself with complete lack of motivation, neglecting housework, making mistakes constantly at work, I returned to the doctor. He doubled my Lexapro dose. I went back as instructed and was not feeling any better and could not cope with how I felt, so he sent to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist added Epilim ie pramipexole hyrochloride (low dose) for mood balance, upped the Valium ie daizepam, to 5mg, and prescribed Immovane for my insomnia and terrifying nightmares. Time went on, and I built a tolerance to Lexapro, so he put me on Pristique 200 and Epilim 200. Then I had to have both those doubled (400 each) and I take them twice a day. I have had NO negative side effects at all, and they work excellently for me. As for the restless legs syndrome, that was diagnosed before I was on these medications. The Sifrol had to be increased too as I was told it had to have time to gradually build up in my system. It makes a great difference to my quality of sleep and how my legs feel the next day.

    He tells me that he believes that he can control his seizures by his own means, and he has his own [Prophylactic treatment] and ways of controlling seizures. I think this is fine for him to be observed and he can use his own means to try and control and prevent seizures.

    He therefore on examination today really had no focal neurological signs, which was very encouraging, and I think that considering it has now been 6 weeks since his event [Monday 1st April 2013] and he has had no further seizures, he may well get away with not being on [any anti-epileptic] treatment.

    Signed: Bruce Taylor Neurologist
  • Epilepsy and depression drug side effects (2 responses)
    42yo male having infrequent seizures since he was 19yo.

    Was recently placed on Neurontin and Topamax after a single seizure. This combination of meds appeared to increase the frequency of seizures ( from 1 every few years unmedicated, to 1 every month ). Dosage being increased after each seizure. No seizure control achieved.

    Changed Neurologist, had a 48hr EEG and was changed to Sodium Valproate.

    Have not had a Tonic Clinic seizure since. Suffer myoclnic seizures every day, Lamotrogine and Lacitimal? and Topamx introduced to try a stop the myoclonus... Lamotrogine made them far worse and dizzyness caused by Lacitimal was un-bearable even at very small dose.

    Over the last 3yrs I have noticed and my family even commented on my changed personality - from a care free to someone that is easily aggitated and angry...even when I know things like young children being noisey etc shouldn't make me snap, they do... I know its wrong, but can't help myself... and then hate myself for being so "short" or intolerant of petty things.

    My weight increased by 30kg with 4 months... more than 40% increase in weight.

    My hair just falling out, by the 1000's every day... my bike helmet is full of hair and when washing, hair is visible in the shampoo bubbles.

    My gums bleed very easily and they no longer grow up around the base of my teeth - they seem to be retracting away ( believe this message s called attrophy ).

    Have researched quite extensively to see the likely hood of all these medical problem I have now being associated with the medications I take for my primary condition ( epilepsy ).. And given the frequency of seizure off medication is every few years, seeking advice from or to hear from anyone with similar conditions about how they addressed them and if they remained on the medications.

    From this web site, all my symptoms seems to affect a very low % of people taking the meds... am I trying to link medical concerns to the medications unjustly... the likely hood of suffering all these side effects is extremely remote when most affect only 2 or 3 in100 people.

    ( likely hood of suffering all 5 conditions = approx 1 in 40,000,000

    - more likey to be hypercondriact aren't I?

  • From this study (8 hours ago):

  • Been diagnosed with ADHD. Also symptoms of borderline and bipolar two are present.


  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 about 20 years ago. I manage it well generally - I do not drink or take illegal drugs. About 12 months ago I was made redundant from a very senior position at 53. Unfortunately I was immediately head hunted for an exceptionally stressful role working for a manager who turned out to be particularly toxic. After 6 months of watching my health deteriorate - I resigned effective immediately and have been out of work now for over 6 months. This is the first time in my life I have ever been unemployed and I became very depressed - my PDoc prescribed Lexapro on top of my usual medications. It made me very "wobbly" on my feet - and I became quite clumsy - and have fallen, tripped and slipped on an indordinate number of occassions since taking the drug - I was also accutely aware that my depth perception was distorted. A week ago I had a serious fall in a coffee shop where I sat down and totally missed the stool and hit a counter edge with the back of my neck and lower cranium and landed on my back with my shoulder blades hitting the concrete floor. I was briefly unconscious but refused to take the ambulance to hospital and walked 50 metres home - took 2 x panadeine and 2 x 2mg of clonezapam and went to bed with the mother of all headaches. I slept for about 6 hours and when I awoke I just had a glass of water and repeated the dosage. I remained in bed for 4 days before the headache was gone and I felt able to get up and move around. Four days later I awoke with the most terrible pain in my left foot. Not understanding what it was I thought I had stubbed my toe and applied a topical ointment, took 2 x padadeine and went back to bed. When I woke this morning the pain in my foot was off the richter scale. I then called the GP and a friend drove me there where I walked using a walking stick (I am 53). It turns out that I had gout probably caused by extreme dehydration as a result of not eating and drinking properly while trying to sleep off the headache following the fall. I am now taking Gastrolyte in cold water and have taken anti inflammatories with food + 2 x panadeine for pain, elevated my foot and intend to raise this issue of iatrogenic illness at my consult with my PDoc next week - who never at any stage warned me about any of the above contraindications of combining the Lexapro with the other meds.

  • stopped using crystal and risperdal consta
