Today's major side effects - really really bad vertigo. poor thought cohesion.

13 days for me to decide if I'm going to request another medication in a vain attempt to stop this shit. Despite the fact that this is the least side-effect-y of all of the anticonvulsants. Because my body is reacting to it in ways that Don't Make Sense. Maybe another med will work in the opposite way it's supposed to and *not* give me side effects.

kires called to tell me about something he read in Discover Magazine, a transcranial... thingy... I'm too tired to go upstairs and look. He says it looks like a big flyswatter. Apparently it causes your neurons to file prematurely and stops seizures that way.

Which, if no meds work/are livable, would seem to be the only nonsurgical option. The preferable surgical option is the vagus nerve stimulator. Actual brain surgery is, of course, at the bottom of my list.

Only other option is just to not medicate and just live with having seizures.

I dunno. I have lots of reading to do in the next 13 days. *sigh*
