Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
I have been on Methotrexate and Enbrel injectables for two years for psoriatic arthritis. My abdomen became very tender last September. In October I developed a severe pain in my abdomen, went to the bathroom, passed a bloody stool and almost passed out. Later I passed two large blood clots. I went to the ER and they did a cat scan, said I had a thickening of the left and right walls of my colon. Went to gastroenterologist, did a colonoscopy, biopsies were negative. Had a MRA and blood flow was fine.
From this study (2 years 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)
Vimpat - 400mg (ramping down)
Acyclovir - 400mg
Vitamin D-3 - 10,000iu
Vitamin B-12 - 5,000mcg
Pregnenolone - 30mg
Gabba - 750mg
