Hi there. I am new here and hav had epilepsy for the past 3 years. My seizures hav been generally controlled. I am on lamictin and epillim and recently i tried removing epillim and switching to monotherapy. That didnt work, i had my first grand mal since 18 months. I always get an aura before a seizure. I sometimes feel like i can control these auras and i am wondering whether there is some way of doing it. These auras hav an emotional link, i cant help but feel that i can somehow fix this problem myself without meds. Im just sick of taking them. I hav sometimes tried shifting my line of thought once i feel an aura developing. Am i being totally ignorant or has anyone successfully tried to control them?
