I recently changed my epilepsy medication because of my hospitalization. It has been a positive, but difficult transition. It has changed the way my seizures have affected me, which is great! The only downfall is some terrible mood swings. They happen quickly and I can’t control them. One second, everything is hilarious and the next there are tears running down my face. I also feel like I have to move more than before or it hurts similar to muscle aches. Sometimes medications impact my mood, but it doesn’t dull my spirit. I am aware of it, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. I am stronger than my meds are and this won’t slow me down. I do hope my body adjusts soon though.
