Re: Zonegran and irritability?
I was put on zonegran the end of January. Three days after starting it I had the worst seizure I had ever had. The longer I was on it the worse I was getting including irritable, trouble concentrating, trouble remembering things, tired, worn out, trouble sleeping and went from having 1 or 2 seizures a month to averaging 20 seizures a week. I did some research on zonegran on several websites including *****.com and found information suggesting I should stop taking zonegran. I tried to talk to my doctor about it but she wouldn't return my phone calls. I was also trying to do college at the time and was struggling. I decided to quit taking zonegran by lowering my dosage gradually and have been much better since. I have gone down to only having a couple seizures a week, being able to concentrate normally, remembering things much easier, sleeping a lot better, and having a lot more energy.
