Hey guys I'm ok just has to have some sleep today. I have epilepsy upon all the other crap I deal with and it has got worse over the last few years with my health going down. Anyway I had been taking depakote for it for years which helps but the Doc also put me on Valium everyday about a year ago. I had been taking it everyday but got so sick of taking so many meds I had started trying to wing my self off it. I went from a 5 mg pill which will knock a grown man a flip for 2 days but I had taken it for so long it didn't phase me anyway I had winged my self from a a whole pill to half a pill to a quarter of a pill, with the damage my brain has seen from the accident and a couple of seizures it was really messing my head up trying to wing myself off the meds.

I had been feeling very rough mental wise the last couple weeks but figured it wold clear up when I got off them for good. Thats what I I get for doing my own thinking, Looks like I bout cause my self to have a seizure and close to a stroke. I didn't sleep all night last night and the longer it went on the worse I got. By morning I was on the virge of a full blown seizure couldn't hardly stand it and my head was busting. I couldn't concentrate see or even hardly move. When the Ambulance got here my BP was 147 /107 which is high for a normal man but crazy high for me mine rins about 85/55 most of the time. At the Hospital they gave me some IV Drugs to Stop a Seizure and bring my BP down and then found out I had a Kidney Infection on top of that. Doc told me I could not come off the Meds I was trying to wing of off and prolly would have to take them the rest of my life grrrrrr. So I will go back to what I was doing and should be fine the Doc said but lucky I didn't have a stroke I guess, been in the bed all day hope I can rest tonight and start to get back to normal.

Anyway I wanna thank you guys for the thoughts and prayers I app I love my TNDEER Family

Continue to pray for you. Hope the meds work and you can get some sound sleep, I know seizures can really drain you mentally and physically.

Curtis I'm sure sorry you're having to go thru all this bud.. Matthew finally came completely off the Depakote however will likely take the other seizure meds for life - which is ok with him if he can avoid having anymore full blown seizures.

Has your Dr ever talked about Keppra and/or lamicatal? They seem to be a couple of the newer ones supposedly having less side effects than some of the older ones line Depakote.

Either way - as tough a man as you are, you'll be back building something in no time!

Prayers sent!

I was put on Depakote at one point and it messed with my mood so much that I almost didn't make it off the medication...

Glad you are feeling better! Do what the doctors tell you, each medicine you take is affecting the other medicines you are taking. You can't just adjust one without affecting all of them. Be careful!
