I am currently taking 400mg/day of lamictal, and 600mg/day of Zonegran iin order to control my temporal lobe, partial-complex, seizures. I am not, nor do I believe I ever will be 100% completely seizure free, but my side effects of the medication are bothersome to me. Mainly, difficulty in concentration. So I've been taking ginko biloba lately and it seems to clear my head somewhat. Will this lower my threshold level? Also, what else can I do besides proper sleep, diet, medication, and exercise to manage my condition best. What I'd also like to ask is this, can the human brain, through mental conditioning and training, heal itself by overcoming, or fighting off the onset of a seizure? I've had an episode or two with an aura, vertigo, nausea, and I've, through determination and willpower, and with the help of meds, I suppose, fought off loss of consiousness on both occassions. My last question is this, why can one small (in my case, due to a prior motorcycle accident) area of the brain cause a rash of unconrtrolled activity in a normally fuctioning brain? I know that this is far more than you can answer in a simple forum, but just the basic sketch will do, with reference to meds and my best shots at becoming 100% seizure free...I know what the odds are.
