I had my first seizure ever on 4/19/2011, my 2nd the very next day, and my 3rd on 6/20/2011 (All Grand Mal). I could not believe that just a week before I turned 30 that I would become epileptic, but here I am still battling simple partial seizures. First of all, I have to say how deeply sorry I am for all the sufferers in the world. I am currently on Topamax 100 mg 2x daily for Grand mals for over a year now, & my recently new doctor prescribed Clonazepam 0.5 mg 2x daily for simple partial seizures, insomnia, & anxiety in June of this year. I was feeling okay until I had woke up at 4:15 am on 9/16 and started having a bad seizure while my husband was at work. It felt like the most terrifying thing was in the room and out to possess me, and the whole left side of my brain wasn't working! I managed to get off the couch and call my husband, my speech was slurred, I was sweating, out of breath. I called my doctor the next day which was Monday, but they can't see me for weeks and I am at my wit's end as far as waking up all through the night thinking there's someone or something in the room coming to get me. I feel so alone, I feel scared to go to sleep at night, and I'm wondering if the Clonazepam is causing me to feel this way. I mean I am totally PARANOID, and I HATE THIS! I've prayed, and I don't know what to do. If anyone can, please help. Thank you so much for your time! ~ Bambi ~
Clonazepem can cause hallucinations and unusual thoughts. It can also cause worsening seizures. I would call your docs office and ask to talk to the dr, or at least his nurse. Tell them you think you're having a reaction to the clonazepam and you need to see someone or talk to the dr now not a couple of weeks.
