Perampanel

I am on day 2 of taking Perampanel. I took a shower standing up today as opposed to on the chair. I felt some slight unsteadiness but no shaking. Normally when I get out of the shower to towel off my toes curl for steadiness, while they still did that, I think it was an unconscious response as I did...

Re: Perampanel

I went to my doctor today and got a prescription for Perampanel. This is a drug neither he or the pharmacist were aware of. It is an approved drug in Canada and covered by my insurance. I will do my best to report on effects/results over the coming months.

This happens mostly whenI get out of bed to go the bathroom and try to not wake up my wife. I am wondering how much the reliance o...

Performing tasks above head

I am not sure if others have experienced a severe almost instantaneous worsening of OT when performing tasks with arms reached above the head, but it is a real issue for me.

Captured OT Readings Graphically

Today we closed our swimming pool which is a medium strenuous activity, I had some of the worst OT's I have ever experienced. We have a safety cover which is spring loaded and required pulling some heavy duty springs over a pin. You need to use significant force to do this as you stand bent over the...

Swimming

I was just wondering if anyone finds they have signs of OT when they are swimming. My OT has gotten progressively worse and I noticed today when I was in the pool I had no problems even standing up, however as soon as I got out the tremors were noticeable. Just wondering about others experience.
