I have been taking it for 4 years. I take antidepressants for seizures because i read the barbitals i was given were highly addictive, and i had a young child at the time and felt lethargic. my seizures are brought on by bright lights, when i miss a dose of the antidepressant i have sound seizures as well. i have been trying to lighten up on the tramadol, I feel that i am taking to much. when i let myself run out my sight becomes more sensitive and have more seizure activity I read tramadol is supposed to cause them not the other way around. Why is this ?
