I'm a 21yo old guy from Romania (well, sorry for my english)
At the age of 7 I suffered 3 grand mal seizure at few months distance (all in sleep). I received treatment with phenobarbital, but side effect was worst and then doctor switched to Lamictal 50mg and later dropped to 25mg 3 times a day. Last time in 2010, finally dose was reduced to two doses of 25 mg daily. But this month, on may 9, I have a grand-mal seizure during sleep again. This demoralized me a lot and I want to ask, from now it's possible to have again seizures more worst than in childhood?
Before that in the last month I forgot to take the dose of lamictal and I take it irregular and only one instead of two, is it possible to be a cause? Now I will never forget to take dose again, but I want to know if I correct my mistake I will remain good and seizure free again?
P:S: Lamictal does not cause me side effects and I feel perfectly normal when I take. I have epilepsy from my father (my father is seizures free now and no longer take medicamentation by long time).
