: I have a story behind this question, I'm not going to tell it because I would take up to much of your time.
: Ok I take- Tegretol 800mg daily
: Clonazepam 4mg daily
: Zoloft 225mg daily
: Trazodone 300mg bedtime
: I have seizures, depression and I am hypothyroid.
: My life is not my own and I am not the same person I was before my seizures started, I want myself back, to the person that everyone says I was. I am unable to remember what that person was like. This all started in 1983.
: That is why I ask this question.
You say your seizures started in 1983, you don't state your age i wonder how do you think your seizures started? did you have some trauma,infection,illness or vaccination prior to the seizures commencing? I don't think it is good to take so much drugs especially you're still getting the seizures(obviously drugs aren't controlling) i do believe some drugs may actually increase the symptoms/seizures, it would be worth discussing this with your doctor/investigating yourself also, look into allergies as these can trigger seizures though few doctors can get past prescriptions and investigate allergies for some strange reason remember all drugs are toxic to the body and they all have side effects so one has to weigh whether you are getting any benefits and do they outweigh the risks from side effects in short make informed decisions
