I'm using pro-gest to limit my monthly auras and it's a life-saver. What upsets me is my lack of concentration (it's definitely getting worse as I get older) and my reluctance to take responsibility for things. I take 800mg of Tegretol per day and have used this drug since I was 9 yrs old. I'm already showing signs of perimenopause at 42! I had my thyroid removed 5 years ago. Anything to help my foggy thinking would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Kate
How long have you been using the pro-gest? It's interesing it helps with auras as it used mainly for hormone therapy in memopause. Anyhow, I am not sure if you have thyroid meds, the pro-gest or anything else that could be combining with the tegretol to create this foggy sensuation. I'm guessing it is more from a drug interaction or changing imbalance from the drugs than it is from the last seiure. I do know some women find a reduction in seizures as they go through the hormonal change of memopause so maybe it is even time to discuss your tegretol levels with your neurologist and/or family doctor. Be sure he/she knows all drugs and herbal supplements you are taking.
