Hey! I'm 16 and I have Epilepsy and Panic Attacks could these possibly be linked together in any way?

many times panic attacks and epilepsy go hand in hand. do you have different doctors perscribing different medications? if so keep each doctor aware of what the other doctor is perscribing. some medications may have bad interactions with another medication. good luck

How are you today?

I forgot you tried Felbatol. How long did you try it before they stopped offering it widely?

I had panic/anxiety attacks religiously because I was afraid I'd seize in public. I refused to go in public. I feared the "humiliation" and disorientation. After discussing it with my neuro, I was placed on Paxil. It's an anti-anxiety med that works wonders for me. Ask your neuro, perhaps he/she thinks it's right for you.
