I am on dilantin and klonopin for temporal lobe epilepsy. I have a history of depression and panic attacks. My medic. have worked well in controlling my seizures. However after being on dilantin for over 39 years, I having trouble walking, and it has caused memory problems, I am also B-12 deficienced due to dilantin.
I am thinking I need to change my dilantin medic.
I have also thought If is not broken, don't fix it.
When I do have a seizure they do not come as often, do not last as long, and they are not as sever as they were.
I have tried other medic. Phenob., mysoline, tegretol-XR, lamictal, lodrane, and the worse was KEPPRA. I was not able to tolerate the side effects of these medic.
I am VERY scare to change seizure medic. as I sure those with E. know.
I do have a neur. I would like to get some advise on change from dilantin.
