Re: Phonobarbital Withdrawl?
In order to diagnose epilepsy, it takes two or more seizures. Then and with all we know, a cause needs to be sought since many Medical conditions also can cause seizures. The lack of frequency tells me there is something else in play. Also, seizures can manifst themselves in ways that some are not aware of. Deja Vu, Jaimais vu, extremes of emotion, unusual feelings/ sort of like dizziness but not exactly, headaches, gastric rising, sleep walking, finding oneself in unusual places, etc all can be ways seizures manifest themselves and these are other than the typical grand mal activity. What type did/do you have? Many people have just one seizure and never have another. That is not a case that needs medication. Speaking of docs, when was the last time anyone did a blood level on you when you were still taking it? Did you have regular levels drawn? About seeing a doc, if there is no evidence of seizure activity now and after this long since you stopped taking it, I can't see any doc putting you back on meds again. Phoebe
