I'm confused...I didn't think neurologists prescribed anti-convulsants for "pseudo-seizures" or psychogenic seizures.
Are you sure you're not having epileptic seizures? Because AEDs like Dilantin aren't used in treating "pseudo-seizures."
I thought I was having psychogenic nonepileptic seizures because I'm on my seventh med combo and nothing is working 100% so I did some research (even though, at my last visit, I actually asked my neuro. if I was having nonepileptic seizures and he said No Way!) and I found out this info from the EFA site which may be helpful to some people here who have posted about their seizures in the past and have wondered the same thing.... * An apparent convulsive seizure that extends for many minutes, even an hour or longer, may be nonepileptic, especially if there is no cyanosis and the patient wakes up immediately after the seizure movements stop. (I lost consciousness for 5-10 mins.)
* The recovery period (postictal state) following a psychogenic nonepileptic seizure is brief; recovery from an epileptic tonic-clonic seizure lasts minutes to hours, characterized by confusion, headache, exhaustion and sleep. (sleepytime for me for almost four hours after the big tonic-clonic.)
I've read that Neurontin is often prescribed for people with chronic pain. Like Travis said, though, meds work differently for every person. I hope you find relief!
