Drumnut Posted March 26, 2010 Author Share Posted March 26, 2010 QUOTE (Der Trommler @ Mar 25 2010, 09:18 AM)QUOTE (Drumnut @ Mar 25 2010, 03:07 AM) None today, I had to go and have a blood drug levels checked today, they're going to call me and me if it's okay. If not, I'm gonna have to take more drugs I hate every day. My decided that the Ritalin was too much for me. (I already stopped taking it). He thinks that he needs to double my Celexa dosage (has a side effect that is conducive in bed-No, it's not the Viagra thing though). I tell him and he still wants to have it doubled and then he can give me another med to offset Celexa. I'm changing providers. This isn't worth it.... I hate it when Dr's just keep throwing drugs at something until they think they've found one that works. I'm on Lamictal right now and have the worst side effects of any drug I've ever taken. It's not controlling my seizures, and a known side effect is hair loss. Mine is falling out all over the place. My Dr claims he's never heard of the hair loss side effect. I still want to go back on the drug I liked, Dilantin, but my Dr won't let me. I'm taking Lamictal and Keppra and am on disability. Once I reach a certain limit cost-wise, disability stops paying for it and it ain't cheap! Once I reach my cost limit, I have no way to pay for it. Dilantin is cheap and I feel it's the best drug I've ever taken for Epilepsy. I wish I could figure out a way to convince him to let me try it again, the 2 drugs I'm taking right now aren't controlling my seizures anyway. Now that I'm looking at possible surgery, I'm going to tell him I want to try Dilantin again before I go through with surgery. No seizures for me today. I went to see a different Dr for something else and that went well today. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
