I left my first post a few days ago in reply to kaileyris98 who 7 months ago titled a post 'Temporal Lobe Seizures and loss of memory'. I have been diagnosed with TEA a rare epileptic condition for which I can find no reference on the Epilepsy Action/HealthUnlocked websites.
After an 18 month wait I am seeing my neurologist again on 7/1/20 and I am currently researching the condition and would welcome posts from others. My 'absences' have been controlled successfully by am and pm 500mg of Keppra and I have been 'absence; free since commencing medication. However, I had a second nocturnal physical seizure (17 months apart from the 1st) and woke in bed with a dislocated and fractured shoulder 9 months ago, no seizures since.
I believe stress induced that physical seizure but having read the Epilepsy Action booklet B004.05 'Epilepsy: diagnosis, treatment and healthcare' p.28 I will ask my pharmacist if at the time of that seizure I was taking a generic substitute/parallel import. Given the possibility of inconsistent supplies following BREXIT it may prove important for myself and others to ensure consistency of medication.To quote that page 'Generic prescribing and parallel imports mean there can be many different versions of one medicine'.
I would welcome any observations about TEA in general and generic medication.
