Hi Butter

I would suggest you contacting your neuro and discussing this issue with him/her.

You may need to have your medication dossage increased or if you have been on to long and it may need another med to work with it. Or even a change of medication may be required.

I know because I have had issues regarding seizures. After being on a medication for a long period of time your body gets used to it. I had some medicines which had to be changed because the medication was toxic in my system after taking it for 30 years. It happens with many medications. I need ampicillon now because penecilon will not work due to taking it more throughout the years.

Thank you for your surppot
