I used to be on clonazepam for seizure prevention. That medicine didn't work and made me psychotic. My neurologist switched me to lamictal because I was also diagnosed with a mood disorder. Anyway, I had shortness of breath with the clonazepam and even when I went off it and started the lamictal it became worse. I am an avid runner and I workout often. Even sometimes when I'm just sitting down and watching tv I get out of breath. I want to tell my mom but I don't want her thinking I'm a hypochondriac. How do I approach this topic without seeming like I want a bunch of attention?

Shortness of breath can be indicative of many things some of which can be serious. You need to tell your mom just like you did us. Explain that you don't want to be an attention seeker, but thought that you should tell her what you are experiencing. It is important to have this adressed by the doc.
