Unfortunate Newbie

I am 59 and recently had back to back Tonic-clonic seizures and a few focal aware seizures. I have never had a seizure before, at least not that I aware of. At the time I was taking 1000mg Depakote ER per day for migraines. My Neurologist took me off Depakote and I am now on 25mg Lamotrigine (has me slowly working towards 100mg per day). He then put me on Emgality for my migraines. I hope that they don't happen again. Still wondering how this happened to me.
