My father had seizures as a child, until age 4-5. He was seizure free until his late 30's. He had an unexpected seizure and his dr put him on seizure medication. (i do not know much about what medicine or his diagnosis.) I had seizures as a baby and was diagnosed with febrile seizures. I was put on medication until age 4. (phenbuterol possibly?). My son started having seizures by age 1. He was diagnosed with febrile seizures until his 6th seizure. He had an EEG done and the dr found waves of epileptic nature in the left side of his brain. He was put on Triliptal. He only had one seizure after being put on medication. It was different than all seizures before. He looked like he was sleeping, i believe the dr called it a frontal seizure. The dosage on his meds was upped and he has not had one since then. My question is, since I've never had an EEG done, is it a possibility that I would have a form of epilepsy? I was diagnosed with ADD years ago. I have never been able to focus on much. My memory is terrible. I am very spacey and I often pause and stare into space, lost in thought. I've been on adderall for a year now, and it has helped, but is now no longer working for me. I have suffered with depression and moodiness for a few years now. I have taken many medications for it - lexapro, effexor, pristine, welbuterin - and nothing has really worked for me. They actually have made my mind feel more cloudy than before. Mainly, I feel like it is something more. I just feel like my mind can NEVER focus. I am in need of advice!!
