| | Tegretol Sucks!!!!!!
Ok, so about 3 weeks ago my tegretol stoped working again. I'll be fine for a month with my partial complex seizures, then all of a sudden I will get them for a day or 2, then they will go away. Well about a week befor X-mass my doc put me on Tegretol XR. It's a time release pill. 1 pill is supposed to last about 12 hours. I take that twice a day. Boy let me tell you taking 1 pill twicw a day is a whole lot better than taking 1 5 times a day. Well, I've been on this new med for about a week. Was doing fine....BUT...I had more spells over the weekend. Had about 4 of them. 2 were within an hour of each other. I don't know what the deal is. I guess I could be getting a tollerance to the meds. I've been on tegretol for about 11 years now. I go to the NEURO on the 4th. First time in about 4 years. hopefully he can give me something better, cause it sure does suck having these damn things at work. I drool all over the place and I can't talk at all. Everyone things I'm choking or going to puke. I can't tell them what is going on cause I can't talk. Just gota wait till the spell is done. Then I just hang my head and tell them what happend. UGH!!!! I need a new med. Anyone have any suggestions for partial complex seizures?
