[FONT=Comic Sans MS]Hey guys.... was just wondering if any of ya'll have taken a drug called Zonegran... it is basically a drug like Keppra, or Neurontin... my pain management doc put me on it when I saw him about a week ago... started me 1 - 50mg pill at bedtime...then after a week im supposed to up it to 2 then work my way to 3 at bedtime, he told me to be very careful because they cause sedation and would make me very drowsey and such.... I took my first 4 doses and have not been able to sleep at night at all... thats why its 2:45 am and I am wide awake...it seems that my pain in my lower back, hips, buttocks, and legs is more intense... the burning and such is more intensified...have been having bad spasms in my lower back... literally feels like my legs are horribly sun burnt...can't stand for even the bed sheet to touch me..Have been feeling REALLY depressed...more then usual...and other stuff.....Im gonna call my doc and tell him about it tomorrow because I am not supposed to go back to him until 12/29... and I can not tolerate going without sleep and all this other stuff for the next 4 weeks...But like I said, was just wondering if any of ya'll have taken Zonegran and if you have experienced any of these effects....Thanks Ya'll.... Take Care.[/FONT]
