Yes, that’s right, no more Topiramate.
Tomorrow is my last day of Topiramate. I’ll then just be taking Levetiracetam and Lamotrigine. I have been in the process of cutting down to 2 drugs since my visit to the Neurologist in mid July. Each month I took 25 less. I was at 50 mg twice a day.
So, will this make a difference ? Who knows. I haven’t really been the best lately. At the end of last week, I had turns 4 days in a row. But it’s all emotional. What I mean by that is that most of the time I know why my turn happened, what brought it on. If we look at the year so far, I was better in the first half.
Here is my number of turns month by month.
- January – 3
- February – 3
- March – 4
- April – 4
- May – 6
- June – 6
- July – 4
- August – 6
- September – 4
- October ….so far – 5
So, has the small increase got anything to do with medication ? I don’t think so. We’ll have to wait and see. I’m still keen on seeing a Hypnotist. I did speak to one a while ago. He said they weren’t allowed to see the likes of myself, that they could be held accountable for anything that happens. There is a Hypnotist that advertising that she can relieve stress, confidence…. all types of emotional stuff. I’ll think I’ll give her a call sometime.
Let’s see if no Topriamate makes a difference. I’ve been on it for a very long time !!
