    continuing the sagaof my wife,on the 25/03/2015 my wife had an epileptic seizure at 7 a.m. this morning it was a very strong seizuree, thrashing her legs about for about 1 minute then blowing rasberry's foe about 5 minutes, the rest of the day she was outof it.
    30/03/2015 my wife fainted at 7.45 a.m. while sat at the table having her serials, i had just left the room for a moment, when i came back into the room she was slumped in the dining chair, i lade her on the floor & rang 999 for a ambulace, they took her blood presure & gave her a thorough check over but could not find any couse of the fainting.
    I had a theory on the problem, i was talking to a woman that has epilepsy & she was cutting her tablets in half , she spoke to the pharmacist & he said that rather than cutting the tablet in half she should have a smaller tablet, by axposing a uncoated tablet it could increase the blood pressure.
    31/03/2015 made a appointment with the doctor the doctor said that they do noy make a prolonged release tegrotel 100m.g. tablet so it was decided to give my wife 200m.g.tegrotel in the morning & 400m.g. in thew evening,,up till now every thing is o.k. apart from still being incotinent bu i can put up with that by the use of the pads.

    Glad that your wife recovered from her seizure and that you are coping.
