So i have jme n gtcs also they get worse when its that time of the month. I'v been on every seizure med their is, for some reason vimpat is working, except that time of the month, my nero dr knows And confers w my psyc dr. about my treatment of adult adhd and for last 2 years have also been on adderall an ritalin, if u exsplain to nero dr how hard it is not to over fill ur sink or tub just because u wondered off because u remembered something else u were supose to do. Ur dr will have to help u. now 4 me i had to wait till my nero n i could find a med that didnt have horrible side affects n that could treat my uncontrolled seizures, 4me i would rather have seizures than the sideaffects that would prevent me from getting outa bed to take care of my 4 children. It took many years n 5 nero drs befor I found 1that really understood and listend to me and where i was coming from. I tried all the meds she put me on, for what she called intractable epillepsy, i went from over 40 jme seizures aday, which unless i was compleatly able to shut my brain down would lead to gtcs. so if ur nero wont listen to u, time for new dr.View Thread
