Epilim Epilepsy Causes and Reviews


Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes people to have recurring seizures. The seizures happen when clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain send out the wrong signals. People may have strange sensations and emotions or behave strangely. They may have violent muscle spasms or lose consciousness.

Epilepsy has many possible causes, including illness, brain injury, and abnormal brain development. In many cases, the cause is unknown.

Doctors use brain scans and other tests to diagnose Epilepsy. It is important to start treatment right away. There is no cure for Epilepsy, but medicines can control seizures for most people. When medicines are not working well, surgery or implanted devices such as vagus nerve stimulators may help. Special diets can help some children with Epilepsy.

Epilim Epilepsy Reviews

Fri, 10 Feb 2012

I have been on Epilim now for 17 years, due to some Grand Mal seizures since I was 15, but prior to Epilim I was on Tegretol, taken off Tegretol due to more side effects to the liver than Epilim has.
All together I have now been on Anit-Convulsant drugs for the last 32 years. I wouldn't say my weight gain is all due to the taking of this medication but am now having to go up slowly from 500mg x 2 a day to taking 1000 x 2 a day.
I am sure all those really concerned with side effects, go and see your doctor and demand why this is happening and ask to be removed from the medication if you think it is giving you all of these issues, but also in saying that you also need to let the medication be able to get into your system at a certain level for a certain length of time for it to be really effective on why it was prescribed.
My reason for the increase now is that I suffer with chronic debilitating back pain along with my brain waves still showing activity there for Epilepsy. I was in shock and am hoping I don't myself gain anymore weight as the middle age spread has done enough of that for me and with having my bad pain in the back, it is a lot harder to do any exercise.
I have never experienced suicidal thoughts, nor have I had erratic mood swings. I have however felt very tired when first using the medication all those years ago.For the person having to take so much above and then she mentions all the side effects she is having, again write everything down and let your doctor know, make sure they listen and if they don't well go and see another doctor, although this would be a first to hear that Epilim is being used to regulate your cycle every month, I would not be seeing a normal GP about that but making an appointment to see a specialist in that field.
I am grateful that I have not had too many side effects but will let you know when my dose has increased to the amount my specialist wishes me to take, although one more moment of fog brain and I will then need to find yet another medication as this is a 3rd attempt to stop neurological pain in my back
All the best to everyone and take care x

Epilum - I have been treated for Epilepsy from the age of 14, I am now 34. I have had only 3 episodes in my life. I have used convulex which worked very well. Dr switched me to rivitrol when I wanted to get pregnant. It was a horrible drug. I experieced pins and needles in my hands followed by migranes. After my preganacy I was put on epilum. I have been on this now for 3 years. I am experiencing memory loss to the extent that it drives me crazy. I use to be sharp and clever. Has anyone experienced this with Epilum?

In reply to Lulu's posting - our 17 year old daughter was diagnosed aged 12, started medication on lamotrigine, changed to keppra (which made her very poorly, hallucinating, depressed) and is now on Epilim. I note your comment that your memory loss drives you crazy and that you used to be 'sharp and clever'. Since she was diagnosed, our daughter has definitely become less sharp and seemed to be much brighter before she was on Epilepsy medication. Has anyone else experienced these kind of symptoms? Also, Lulu, do you constantly feel drowsy - our daughter is tired all the time. She can sleep in til 3pm and then fall asleep again at 9!

Hi my Mom is 78yo and had her first seizure 5mths ago (we think due to the flu vaccine) and another 4wks ago, she was diagnosed with Epilepsy after her second episode and put on Epilim. Since then she has deteriorated significantly from a very alert and strong person to being forgetful, fearful and very tired, I have noticed she struggles to focus. Reading what other are saying I have to admit a certain relief as I thought because of her age she could have something else wrong but it seems that the side effects discribed are common. Is there anyone on a therapy that does not exhibit these side effects?

I stuggle alot with my weight and have even considered a gastric bypass but after doing some research found out that people who suffered from Epilepsy who had the operatin only got worse so decided against it. I also struggle with hairloss. So glad to see i am not the only one.
