How to use epilepsy in a sentence?

  1. David Ficker:

    Definitely in the epilepsy physician community, we are well aware of the risks of valproic acid during pregnancy. I think even in the neurology community.

  2. Cameron Heron:

    Carmen Heron, who is speaking out on behalf of her daughter, who is now legally deaf because of SJS, said.I get emotional even thinking about it. Im just so excited for her. She is still dealing with the aftermath of SJS now, and I do worry and think, Is this the life shes going to have ? But now, its not shell have a new life as a mum. For Heron, who was an apprentice chef at a top Sydney restaurant when she became ill, but can no longer work, life changed forever in early 2014, when she was diagnosed with epilepsy. Right away, she was placed on two drugs commonly prescribed to help manage seizures levetiracetam, more commonly known as Keppra, and lamotrigine, sold under the brand name Lamictal. It took three weeks in the hospital before her condition started improving, although she still deals with lasting hearing loss and PTSD from the ordeal. ( PA Real Life) While serious side effects are extremely rare, both drugs carry the risk of triggering a severe cutaneous adverse reaction - such as SJS according to The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence( NICE). At first, Heron appeared to be responding well to medication, until a pinprick-like rash appeared in May. I knew right away that it was an allergic reaction, and so I took her to the doctor and asked them to change the medication she was on.

  3. Marcus Brown:

    Before, I felt like her epilepsy was a weight, something that burdened her every day of her life, whether others knew it or not, it was a secret, an embarrassment, something that separated her from the rest of the world. After she shared it, things changed. People came out of the woodwork with stories and kind words of encouragement, words of praise for being strong enough to share something so personal.

  4. Friedrich Nietzsche, The AntiChrist:

    The "highest" states of mind held up before mankind by christianity as of supreme value, are actually forms of convulsive epilepsy.

  5. Mike Barnes:

    This system has a big role to play in lots of bodily functions, including epilepsy, what the plants are doing is interacting with our own system, supplementing it, putting it right.
