Hey guys I'm new here I hope everyone is well. So the first time I had a seizure I was 10 years old ,the doctors prescribed Epilim for 6 months then the doctors gradually tampered me off it, I didn't have a seizure for until 6 years later when I was 16 I had a couple of seizure that made me unconscious , I was quickly rushed to the hospital and the doctors discovered I had a lesion on my brain and that could be the source of my unusual brain activity so they put me on Epilizine CR500 for 6 months then slowly tampered me of it. Ive been seizure free for 5 years now but last year during Christmas I started having brain zaps and the doctor said I should take my Epilizine , I took it for a month but then in that month I gradually started to have a movement disorder,the muscles at the back of my neck started to become stiff and I gradually started to have a postural neck jerks or tremors that moved my head in a no-no motion. I searched the internet and found out that Epilizine( Sodium Valproate) was implicated in a series of movement disorder ,it was a rare effect but I guess I was the unlikely person to get this movement disorder. I stopped the medication and it's been 2 months now and the movement disorder has recovered at about 70%, hopefully I'll fully recover from this. I write this as an awareness letter,most doctors don't tell you about these effects of Sodium Valproate had I known earlier the movement disorder wouldn't have been progressed to such an extent. I also had questions when I took the medication 5 years ago why didn't I have this movement disorder? What caused it now? , if you may have any thought please do send a response.
