| | See neuro tomorrow- gonna beg off Topa
This has been the worst month of medication adjustments in 11 years (since the autonomic stuff was diagnosed). I'm a zombie on a good day; time is screwed up, I'm barely awake most of the time, etc, and this is on a portion of the normal seizure dose. If he wants to raise it, I just can't see functioning at all, and I live alone, with no friends around- just a dog with a mind of her own. I AM my support system. When I'm out of commision, life shuts down.
The Tegretol worked so much better- and in a smaller dose than what I was on- I'm one of those where 'less is more', and still get therapeutic levels; why do they always want to add drugs, instead of realize that sometimes, breakthrough seizures happen with stress, sleep changes, periods, etc.... they don't have to 'drug' everything to death. E isn't nearly as big of a nightmare if someone would just LISTEN to how I feel when I"m on the meds.
If this guy gives me any defensiveness tomorrow, I'm out of there- mid appt.
