  1. I just wondered if anyone is on Brivarcetam for epilepsy and what their feelings about it are? I have a new neuro and he wants to try me on Cabamazepine but I was looking up meds and this one kinda caught my eye. I want a drug with no weight gain, sexual side effects or problems with my moods but I know I'm probably asking way to much.
  2. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Is it a temporary med or do they want you to stay on it?
  3. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Do you think a probiotic would help? Tired and stressed. Really need to find a bit of energy to make me want to get up and do something, anything that doesn't mean sleeping all day. Random question but is Taffy like toffee?
  4. Cheating on therapist

    I stopped seeing my therapist but now I feel even more lost. I can't find anyone else that I can afford for a start. I know I need some help as things are beginning to spiral but I don't know where to get it from. I'm just so tired of always feeling like this.
  5. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Like giving up. Fed up with feeling ill both physically and mentally. I've no idea what I'm supposed to be doing anymore.
  6. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Feel like I'm coming down with something. Vertigo, earache and really foggy head.
  7. Fibre bulking agent? Think you can get them in a drink form.
  8. Your Cleaning Goals!

    The state of my flat lately is really beginning to depress me. I have so much to tidy its overwhelming. I don't feel physically or mentally well enough to do anything about it. If I can just throw out a few things today and find some stuff to get rid of that might help a bit.

    Tired, sad and foggy headed.
  10. withdrawal that quickly?

    I missed my Lamictal last night. I couldn't remember if I had taken it or not so I didn't take another dose. 3 hours later I felt sick and dizzy, like I was swaying and had a seizure. Oh and weirdly my fingers started aching really badly. Even though I've taken my morning dose I still feel a little headachy. I guess any sudden drop in medication levels is going to have a negative effect.
  11. Memes that make you go hmm 🤔

  12. Just double check the interactions with the meds you are on. I know it reduces the amount of lamictal and increases clobazam in your system. A very low dose shouldn't do it but just be aware that it can. Oil under the tongue enters much quicker than capsules so is best for sleep or for panic attacks. Its works in about 15 minuets were as capsules take a couple of hours. Also you do still need to taper up slowly to avoid getting the runs. The oil I get tastes kinda like mud, not that I've ever eaten mud but I imagine that's what it would taste like.
  13. Its also has a short half life. I think its about 9 hours.
  14. Epilepsy. My seizures are focal to generalised tonic clonic's (bilateral tonic-clonic). All my tonic clonics are in my sleep, multiple times a night but there is seizure activity in the day. Usually daytime activity just feels like a funny turn. They had decreased quite a bit on meds and they aren't as violent as they used to be, but lately they began to increase again and they added clobazam which just makes me feel sick and tired which is a shame as usually I love a good benzo. I know my epilepsy is genetic so I'm not sure if that makes it harder to treat, although the family members I have that also have epilepsy are all controlled except for my Uncle occasionally has random moments when he smells things that aren't there. Hormones trigger my seizures as well so that's a pain (catamenial).
