> Has anyone had a liver biopsy for taking Topomax? I have seen it in the literature about it and it says that you should have it done. This is a new drug. It's only been out since 1996 so we REALLY don't know the long term effects. Just wondering. Kat? Any thoughts?

I have not had one, nor has the neurologist from hades suggested one... for that matter nor has my GP nor the ortho guy and he is careful in the extreme, ordering blood tests and stress tests and any other test he can think of in his wildest nightmares at the drop of a pin just to be on the safe side; I have a session with him tomorrow and shall ask his opinion, though...
am going to ask him about a couple of other things while I am there as well...
have to wait until mid-July to see the neuro about the results of the caffeine- and sleep-deprived EEG -- just tried to book an earlier appointment and was told that the earliest I can get in to see him is in October or November... and that is an EMERGENCY as I am having more frequent break-through seizures... good grief...what happens if a person simply has to see him??? no one seems to understand that there is a medical problem and one would like to see the doctor and get help... that the situation is escalating and that perhaps one is becoming seriously concerned about one's health and welfare...
At any rate, I am going to ask Craig, who is also a friend of long standing and used to my rather bizarre health??? system, if my theory is logical... I seem to have a day or two of sort of grogginess, when all I want to do is sleep or nap; my body is not tired, but my eyes refuse to stay open; they are tired... hard to explain, one has to live it --
then I am hit with a seizure or two during the night...
There is a PSA on television that honours Dr. Wilder Penfield and the work he did towards finding surgical solutions toward some types of seizures, in which the woman smells burned toast before her seizures... well on occasion I do smell something cooking, not toast but a really delicious aroma of roasting meat, but the one I can pin down is this tired eye thing... and I wonder if it is simply a theory or reality... going to ask Craig...and will ask about the liver
biopsy... he will certainly either have an answer of find out the answer for me... and of course if the answer is yes I shall be sticking pins in a doll that looks like you <GGG>
