I experienced a "breakthrough" gm last week due to swirching meds (dilantin to trileptal). Has anyone heard of "breakthrough" or is that just a little name my neuro gave it? Nothing would suprise me about him, this's the guy who told me even though I felt all of the symptoms of a seizure coming on, that it was due to the meds and assured me I wouldn't have one.
My strange trigger: the Dr in the ER that saw me put it best... INFORMATION OVERLOAD. Has anyone else experienced this? Since being on trileptal, I can't have more than one thing going on at the same time without getting lightheaded (a sign of things to come).
Has trileptal made me so sensitive to stress/information overload that it will result in a seizure? is it just my body getting use to the new med? How long should I tough it out and live like this before doing something about it?
please... any feedback
