Epilim Fall Reviews

Mon, 25 Jan 2010
My Mother who is 87 years of age with severe dementia is currently in a care home. When people are able to give her attention she is pretty content. Hiwever, she becomes very anxious if she spends any length of time on her own and can wander, and being unsteady on her feet she could Fall. The home wish to perscibe Epilim - ins a "small dose" to help her be less anxious. Would this be a suitable drug for such use, and would it be in some ways a sedative - and if you will - a way of "controlling" her?

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!
