don't feel that bad about 3-5 absence szs a day I had a child that had oaver 100 a day. She had JME and it was a rare type and she passed from it.
Your son may have to need toget it adjusted becuase he is getting older and the med may not be enough for him anymore. Becuase he is pre- puberty nand his growing is going to pick up and fast he will need a bigger dose of it.
Ask and check with his neuro about that topic adn see what he says.
I live in Hawi'i so I may not be much of a help. NancyView Thread
I can not take calcium becuase it messes with the Topamax and causes the drug to go up in my bloodstream and he told me that one.
HE also founf out and is telling ALL of his patients that not only does the magnet kill watches but so can the VNS. I did not know this and have not worn one since it kept short cicuirting. I ahd the battery checked in several watches. The batertty was good but get it back in the watch on either wrist and it short cicuited. so I cna never wear another watch again. Oh, well I have a cell phone in my pocet and that can sere as a watch for now.
I did not come up with it muy TMJ doc came up with it and I had to have it in writing and cleared by my neuro before he could even start the drug.
so I called my neuro's MA and told her what was going on and what needed to be done and she did it.
Now since the TMJ doc was not there on Friday I ahve to wait until Monday for him to get it mailed to me with a 3 month supply thru a company that deals with that. He is smart and will get it to me in HI.
I am going to be started on Pamelor on Monday. It is a TCA or Tricyclic Anti-Depressant drug to treat my migraines.
I already take Topamax ( for sz as well), Fioricet, TPI injections in my neck, and Imitrex and now Pamelor.
My Migraines get WAY out of control and it has NOTHING to do with what I eat or whatever.
I had Menigitis and Encephalitis together in Dec of 95 and they are a direct result of that.
They will NOT go away and I am stuck with them. I went into the hospital with them and came out with them.
Why all do I need all the drugs to control them?
THey don't bother me.
I was on Pamelor once before when i was clinically depressed for 2 years. ThenI was taken off it with no reaming problems.
We will be going to see my grandma in Franklin NC for about 8 days, then will be meeting my aunt in Toronto for3 days then going to her cottage in bala Ontario which is 2.5 hrs NE of Toronto for a weeek or so and will be out of the humitiy of the islands. The Island of Hawi'i is in the 80s and so is Maui. O'ahu is in the 70s and so are the rest of the islands.
I got my first grade back, at UH. It was a test from the Basic Nursing class and I got an A on it. I only missed two answers out of 50 questions.
Man, they make it tough. LIke I said I am going to be lucky to even get thru all this.
I got 4 yrs of this with an added 2 becuase of the neuro science behind it I am taking classes at the same time. I want to work in an EMU someday, but I doubt that will ever happen, but if it does I will be ready for it. I will have to take CEUs every so many yrs to keep with all the changes in medicine and take a special baord which will allow me to work in the EMU. Nursing in there is different than nursing in a regular hospital.
