  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Urine straw colored, no turbidity, discovered after approx. 3 months after starting Lamictal though have found no mention in its side effects. As a nurse for 20 years, have never smelled anything similar in my career. Odor is very strong and musky.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Seizures began 2 years after a MVA with a mild concussion, as Grand Mal. They reduced in severity to absence seizures with current medication regimen. I experience severe mood swings and have become so agitated I was committed to a mental health facility for evaluation at one time. Recently I awoke to find my left hand in a severe contracture. I had spent the previous day in 105 degree weather, unaware of the temperature due to my seizure medications. I am curious to know if this is drug related or an acute sign of MS.
