Yeah I'm kind of nervous about it. I hate being on medication and I really wouldn't want to have to take anything for it.
I've been known to have gran mal seizures, and I'm still not on any medication. A few neurologists have advised me against the pills not just for their cost, but for the fact that its such a regimen- coming onto the medication increases your chance of having seizures by a large amount, and likewise forgetting to take your pills one day will also increase your chance to have them. My only saving grace is that through numerous EEGs/CAT scans and MRIs, they still can't find anything wrong with me (thus I cannot be officially diagnosed with anything specific); I also definitely feel a distinct aura, so I have some warning sign should I be driving or something.
Do you feel an aura, or are you all silent seizures, by all indications? Not that your answer will be of any use to anyone, it's just good to talk about it, so you can manage the anxiety better.
