Is there anyone else here who suffers from epilepsy?. I do.
My therapist has always believed (and i believe it too) that my fear of having a seizure in public triggered my SAD and my APD.
This makes it specially hard for me, because if my anxiety rises, i am at risk of suffering a seizure, it is terrible!.
I am asking this because i had my firts seizure in a couple of years. I had been taking meds like Clonazepam and Diazepam but something went wrong.
I have to check my dose, apparently.

Yeah. Epilepsy sucks.

I wouldn't be surprised if fear of having seizures in public could actually cause someone to develop SA even if they didn't have it previously but for me, the SA was there before the epilepsy. The epilepsy didn't help but certainly didn't cause it.

I've only ever taken one med for it (Depakote) so I can't really say much about the meds you mention.
