I take three meds for seisures one for depressen one to help me sleep asparin for my heart .
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have the blackout type spell but this did not start until medications were changed over n over to try to help. Also I suffer from depression which started from marriage abuse. I have had a broken back from a car accident many years ago but my back has always hurt so,
,some nights of sleep can be a unrestful night. I will take pain pills for this, but my pill trays are full. In 2008 I was still driving and had an accident. I went off the road not knowing at all that I did , that was in a blackout. It was about a year later that I tried brain surgery to try to end my problem, but during the start they said I had a stroke so they stopped. Now it is ten years later of staying at home ,not being able to have that freedom to go as I please.
