Anticonvulsant Overview

Anticonvulsants (also commonly known as antiepileptic drugs or as antiseizure drugs) are a diverse group of pharmacological agents used in the treatment of epileptic seizures. Anticonvulsants are also increasingly being used in the treatment of bipolar disorder[1] and borderline personality disorder,[2] since many seem to act as mood stabilizers, and for the treatment of neuropathic pain.[3] Anticonvulsants suppress the excessive rapid firing of neurons during seizures.[4] Anticonvulsants als...

injury-induced partial complex seizures during sleep, Keppr
1 Reply RSS
I am now a healthy 60 year old woman and I fell and hit my head on the farm 25 years ago. Since then I have suffered from partial complex seizures that occur during sleep (not every night). I am currently taking 3000 mg of divalproex and 1000 of carbamazapine daily however my seizures are still uncontrolled and appear to be happening more often. Now my neurologist wants to place me on Keppra but I'm afraid that as a result, I might have unexpected seizures that are either stronger or that occur during the day; I haven't had a daytime seizure or a grand mal sort of seizure in years and don't want those again.

I was taking 300 mg neurontin. 1 in am, 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which affects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system? Thank you. ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned ...

And how long will they last thanks ## Hello, Lindsey! How are you? After only 8 days, there shouldn't be any real withdrawal effects of anything to worry about. The side effects may take about a week or so to go away, though. The FDA lists the other possible side effects as including weight gain, dry mouth and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've taken 50 mg lamotrigine for approximately 3 weeks. How long will it take until it is safely out of my system?

I'm being taken off of neurontin/gabapentin after seven years. I'm now crying, anxious, and itching all over! I have tried antihistamines and cortisone creams but w/ no relief. ## yes this is normal I went through the same thing. I was on 3600 for eight years. I weaned off very slowly. I started weening off in 2008. I am now down to 400mg and go down about 100 a week. Its so awful ## These types of problems are normal from a sudden withdrawal of any medication that affects brain chemicals, which is exactly what Gabapentin does, since it was initially discovered as an anticonvulsant. Unfortunately, since you were on it for so long, it is probably going to take several weeks for these effects to wear off, though they should gradually improve and lessen in severity. As to the itchi...
