Hi, I am new to this but I wonder if anyone can help. I was shocked to learn at the end of neurologist apt. that I was having seizures and told to take limotrigine. I feel all at sea as except for the wonderful web have not had any of my queries answered 'face-to-face. It seems to be quite a powerful drug and what is routine for professional is a life changer for the individual. Does anyone know if the drug might help the 'in between' problems e.g. walking, speech etc. Are there any long term negative affects, can one come off it. Generally I just more scared of the drug than the epilepsy. Does epilepsy damage the brain? I have occasional atonic 'floppy' seizures, but more frequent atypical absence frozen/conscious' seizures.
I suppose what I am asking is am I being unreasonably paranoid about the medication-scared it could 'dull' me etc and feel that no one is listening to my concerns re chaotic nature (potential to miss tabs) and existing depression and potential side effects,and just want to know what to expect and not get into worse situation.
Sorry this long winded- just part of my chaotic nature!
