Does Trileptal work well for frontal lobe seizures better than other medicines?
If one medicine works better than others, why doesn’t her doctor prescribe this first? Or is it much harder to tell which medicine she will need?
Are there any other Anticonvulsants that cause blood problems?
She was on Flexiril and seeing a Phsycologist for about a year, due to her anxiety from her leg cramps (seizures).
Also she has been off work since late February 2005, because she works in a kitchen, and her boss doesn’t want to risk that she’ll injure herself.
She thinks it’s an extreme measure. I think it’s a precaution.
I remember her having a cramp at the top of a flight of stairs.
Luckily the stairs weere carpeted and her head only got bumped on the final step. She only had to get a few stiches on the top of her head, It could have been much worse. This was back in 2001 or 2002.
