I am 72 years of age and on 1800 mg at this time Banzel
Sleep - I am having insomnia worse as the dose is increased. Double seizures?
Added 28 Jul 2013:
Am taking Banzel and up to 1800 mg daily. My doctor will not help me as he keeps threatening that this is my "last chance" to be seizure free of my double seizures! Lack of sleep is not helping for sure. Had a busy day today and tired right out slept approx. a little over 1 hour then wide awake again tired but cannot sleep. Any help you can give would be appreciated. Joy
Hi, would your doctor consider adding Amitriptyline to your medication? It is an older antidepressant, which is also used for inducing sleep. It is safe to use long term, i have been taking it or several years. Unless you are taking any other medications, it is safe to take with the Banzel. Do you follow good sleep hygiene guidelines? Such as only using your bed for sleep, removing any electric appliances from you bedroom, and blackening it out, using a sleep mask. Not consuming caffeine after midday, etc, etc...
