I was diagnosed with a Ganglioglioma tumour and Focal Epilepsy almost 3 years ago now. First medication was Keppra which made me tired all the time. Next I was given Lamotrigine which caused bad head pains. I am now on Pregabelin and often feel off balance and my memory has become dreadful. Over the last couple of days my seizures have come back with a vengence and I had 2 black outs within an hour so the medication is not controlling the seizures. I am frightened to change to another medication in case the side-effects are even worse than I already have. As I am in my early 60's now, do I stick with Pregabalin as I have been advised to up the dose? I have been told I may be sensitive to medication. Grateful for any advice / information or to hear of other people's experiences.
