    Seizure Background
    My daughter's first tonic clonic seizure was at age 15. On tegretol for 10 years. She is now 25 year old. She had 4 Seizures in the last ten year time period prior to starting a new drug l lamotrigine. Last 5 months have been on lamotrogine and have had 5 seizures since may 2011. Four of the seizures have been in the last 6 weeks. Every seizures has taken place when she was on her period. In Aug 2011 she had her period 3 times in a six week time frame. (week off-week on) She just got her period again (3 weeks after the last episode) and had a tonic clonic seizure. Do you study or know anything about catamenial seizures and treatment such as bioidentical progesterone therapy? Any info would be greatly appreciated. It is now Oct. 31st and my daughter has been on bioidentical progesterone therapy for almost 2 months. She has not had a seizure yet. She told me that she took one extra pill last week because she was under some stress and didn't feel great. She has felt fine since. She got her period today even though she is still using the progesterone cream so we are thinking of just staying on it. Now it's Dec. 7th and my daughter has had 3 tonic clonic seizure in November and December. We have now switched to prometrioum 100 mg from the bioidentical progesterone cream 10mg. She is taking the prometrium at night, (every night) now so we will see what happens. I hate this so much!
