Hi, my name is Rich and I have been dealing with epilepsy since 2004. Before 2004 I smoked marijuana just about every day for about 8 years without a seizure. One morning when I woke up I had a minor convulsion, got checked out and all was fine but I quit smoking in fear I could get worse. Six months after that I had my first full blown seizure and it never stopped from there. I have been on phenytoin (dilantin) for years and just back in 2010 was added a second medication carbamazepine (tegretol). I have not smoked marijuana since before that first episode back in 2004 but after doing research have heard it could hurt or help. In my case would you think since I smoked all those years before my epilepsy with no problem that it would help me today or is the smoking all those years the reason I am permanently damaged today. I am only taking these two medications but will still randomly have a seizure. Do you think starting to smoke marijuana again would help me or hurt me?
