Re: Tegertal brain surgery
The doc I have now wanted to get me off Teg after being on it from the start (1981). This was the second attempt to get me off it, and thankfully it worked this time. That was a year or two ago. They put me on Lyrica when they pulled the Teg, and not long later it was Trileptal that was added... Trileptal did NOT work out for me.
I've been on 10 or 11 meds over the years for my seizures. As many as 4 at a time. Some failed out of the gate, others (like the Trileptal mentioned above) most a year or more to become problematic.
Wish there was an easy answer. A while back after constant failure in attempts to reduce my seizures I started researching a natural remedy, but it was never approved in my state, so I never had the chance to see if it would help or not.
Best of luck,
