My 44 year old husband has had epilepsy since age 13. First he took Phenobarbital and through the years he has been on tegretol, dilantin and now Depakote ER which controls his seizures very well. We found out recently though that he has osteoporosis and fractures. His doctor says this could have been caused by the epilepsy medicaitons. Has anyone else heard of this? He is being treated with Fosamax, Mircalcin and Calcium supplements, but I wanted to find out how common this is. I don't want anyone else to go through the pain he has becuse of this.

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was 10. I am currently 20 years old am at a point in my life where I am starting to lose hope on having my seizures controlled because throughout my life I have tried multiple medications but the ones that worked my body used to and then would stop. The longest Ive been free of them was only 5 months. Im trying to find something in my life truly worth living...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
