Hi there, I was wondering what the benefits (if any) of taking anxiety medication mixed with seizure meds (I am on Tegretol XR). I just can't take this anymore. The anxiety I feel WILL NOT go away no matter WHAT relaxation technique I try. Its only a temporary solution. I use it mostly when I go to bed to help me sleep. My anxiety started when I found out I had Epilepsy in July 2005. It started with the trouble swallowing, now it's the obsession with "taking a full deep breath" or "overbreathing" which is similar to hyperventilating, which is NOT good for someone like me who has had seizures. Nowadays after being on 200mgs of Teg XR a day, I am starting to feel very light tingly, numbing, "achy" feelings in my lips. The same place I would feel that "buzzy electrical shock" feeling right before a seizure. That now stresses me even more, because now i am wondering, "Is the medication blocking a possible seizure and I am feeling the "facial" symptoms?" as a result of my OBERBREATHING - every single day!?!? I hate anxiety. Part of me WANTS to take something for it, the other part doesn't. I was never one to take pills, but I will have to for awhile. Any thoughts on the benefits?
