Hello and welcome!
In adults the choice of an antiepileptic drug depends on several factors like type of seizure, associated medical disorders and use of any medications etc.Dilantin,carbamezapine,valproate can be used in temporal lobe seizures.Topamax,keppra,lamotrigine can be used as add on drugs with medications mentioned above.Dilantin doesn’t cause depression but can cause decrease in renal function,headache,dizziness,confusion,double vision etc.It is best to discuss your concerns with your doctor before initiation of an alternative antiepileptic drug. Do keep us posted.
Thank You so much. I cut the Gabapentin to a lower dose and I think it was from another prescription Plavix and they changed it to Aggrenox I am doing fine now. Age is a bummer. I feel 30 but my body does not realize this!
Smile.I appreciate your time and answer.
Have a wonderful Summer.
