Hi. I have been taking Lamictal (100mg morning and night) which has fully controlled my Grand Mal seizures for four years. But it didn't control my myoclonic jerks which recently increased in frequency. So my Neurologist put me on Clobazam. A few weeks ago, I had my first grand mal seizure in four years (after spending hours at my computer, one hour after falling asleep), and another one last night on the street - I broke a tooth in half by grinding them! My seizures only used to be in the morning after I woke up (Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy) I think the Clobazam is decreasing the effectiveness of the Lamictal. My reading went down from 20 to 18 - the usual therapeutic range is between 5-55. Has anyone had a similar experience or have any advice?
