Complicated: Drugs used for seizure prevention are best used in sufficient dosages to put a patient into a therapeutic range to best protect against future seizures. Your level seems too low, but the medicine, nonetheless, is likely helping. Talk to your neurologist as to what should be done to optimize your treatment. ...Read more

What can cause constant migraines, mental issues now seizures. High platelets 2 yrs. Recent test platelets 565,000, monocytes 1.0, low MCH. Next step?

Discuss with doctor: The findings you describe are consistent with "essential thrombocytosis", a condition in which the bone marrow produces too many platelets. Cause is unknown; it may be genetic. The "next step" should be a discussion with the provider who will be taking that next step with you-- along of course with parent(s) or guardian(s). ...Read more

What does it mean if my BP goes as high as 171/94 and pulse 103 during a seizure? Why does the body react that way?

What does it mean if my BP goes as high as 171/94 and pulse 103 during a seizure? Why does the body react that way?

Adrenaline : During a seizure, just like any other significantly stressful situation, the body's fight or flight senses the stress & responds by releasing stored adrenaline into the circulations. By its direct stimulation on the heart and blood vessels, the rapid surge in this hormone causes a rise in BP & pulse. Other intertwined mechanisms are described but rapid rise in sympathetic tone is the main reason. ...Read more

What is a dissociative seizure? Is this related to anxiety so high it causes a seizure?? Is memory loss assiciated with this?

What is a dissociative seizure?  Is this related to anxiety so high it causes a seizure??  Is memory loss assiciated with this?

Dx of exclusion: Hi David, dissociative seizures are non-epileptic and can be caused by a number of factors (extreme anxiety being one possibility); they require careful evaluation to determine etiology and treatment. Amnesia is possible, but if the seizures are truly psychogenic, the loss is not due to nervous system damage, and should respond to appropriate treatment. Hope this is helpful. Take good care. ...Read more

My wife has undiagnosed seizures when she has high anxiety. When she takes welbutrin, they seem less aggressive and less frequent. Why is that?

My wife has undiagnosed seizures when she has high anxiety.  When she takes welbutrin, they seem less aggressive and less frequent.  Why is that?

Wellbutrin (bupropion): Stress can trigger seizures and should be treated. Paradoxically Wellbutrin can cause seizures by lowering her seizure threshold. She would do better to try a different approach to the anxiety reaction with perhaps Lexapro or Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). These are SSRIs which can also lower seizure threshold but not to the degree Wellbutrin can ...Read more
