Hi Prof. is here again with an update on my condition, which I am sharing in order to find out if there are anymore people on the sit who have the same problem
I have had epilepsy for many years and I take Depakin tablets 3 times a day each tablet is 500 mg. I also have Parkinson's disease for which I take Sinemet tablets 4 times a day each tablet is 250 mg.
My problem is compounded when the epileptic seizures are more frequent and I have to increase the amount of Depakin by an additional 500 mg per day because this also increases the tremors in my right arm and the degree of stiffness and lack of movement in my neck.
My neurologist has told me that it is better to control the seizures and put up with the additional inconvenience caused by the additional tremors and stiffness than to have the seizures because every time a seizure occurs it does damage to the brain, which compounds my health problems.
If anybody is in a similar situation I would be happy to hear fro them we may be able to support each other.
