What is Generalized Epilepsy?

I have had epilepsy for about 20 years now.  I have generalized seizures, which affect both hemispheres of the brain and produce a loss of consciousness.  So far, I have experienced three of the different kinds of generalized seizures: myoclonic, absence, and generalized tonic-clonic.

I am currently taking an anti-epileptic drug called Depakote.  Over the years I have been transitioned across many different medicines including: Dialantin, Tegretol, Topamax, Keppra, Lamictol, and Klonopin.   Whenever I moved into another state and got a new neurologist, I was always switched to a new medicine.

Recently, my husband and I decided to stop the madness.  In an attempt to get more control over my epilepsy, we took several steps in order to better cope with this disability.  However, that is for a later blog post.
