One of the symptoms right before or as my seizures start has always been smelling smoke. I've talked to a few doctors about this (psychiatrist & neurosurgeon & neuro's assistant) and from what I understand this can be either some type of aura or actually part of the seizures? I've been on Oxcarbazepine 600mg twice a day for 6 months. It has helped control my seizures a lot. Everything is better except for deja vu and smoke smells. Sometimes it feels like a whole day of deja vu. The smoke smell is kind of scary though because I never know if its really a fire somewhere in the apartment complex at first. Do you think increasing the med would help these things go away?
