Hi. I'm on Dilantin, also, and I have to work on a computer for eight or nine hours a day, five days a week and I also wear glasses. I adjusted the settings to where my work screen is a soft color that does not hurt my eyes. This helps me.
: Hello. I seem to get "breakthrough" seizures (clusters of them in fact) when stressed out. I have vastly modified my life to lessen this (moved, changed professions, don't drive, etc) and still get stressed and clusters (I have had 3 in the last 3 days). Dilantin (I take 600mg a day, 300 motning, 300 evening to maintain levels) and it makes me dopey and sleepy (2 of the 7 dwarfs, oh well!). Would anyone know if something like valium is a good added medication? Also, I use a computer, and the "flicker" is a culprit for bringing them on. Does an LCD screen offset that problem? Thanks for any response.
