Had 2nd Seizure... now on drugs
After my 2nd seizure my Doc put me on a Dilantin Generic. It is really messing me up. I'm itchy, my eyes roll like I'm going to fall asleep. I work as a computer programmer, and have extreme difficulty concentrating.
I know there are some that regard Diet sodas as the devil incarnate. I've been drinking them for more than a decade. My doc said that there has never been proven studies that really link Aspartame with Seizures. But if it requires quitting diet soda instead of taking these drugs, I'm all for it. Any comments?
I had a seizure in late april 08... and my second one on Sunday this week.
Interestingly... my seizures have seemed to conincide with a diet I've been on. I've cut out extreme sugar deserts (donuts, candies, and so on). No Pizza or extremely fatty stuff. I've lessoned the amount of food I've eaten. I'm down more than 25 pounds. Nothing extreme in my diet, and slowly lossed weight... could this have any effect?
Soda/day... since being married my wife keeps me to about 36ounces of Diet Pepsi/day
