    Catamenial Epilespy

    I have PMS and 98% of my seizures occur at that time. Does anyone have Catamenial Epilepsy? Any tips on how to treat it? I take 300mg of Lamotrigine and my neurologist suggested I take 1/2 clobozam before and after my period. Thanks. Esther

    Prometrium

    Has anyone taken Prometrium as a non menopausal woman? My Ob/Gyn added it to my regime today. I'm a little leary and not sure if I should be doing it. I don't have my Epileptologists blessings either. Probably should call him tomorrow. Also where can I find drug interactions. I also take Trileptal.
