Hello Doctor,
My wife had unbearable headache, 72 hours back and was taken to the causality ward in the hospital. They gave her a shot of Ketonov and after about an hour she had a 10% reduction in the pain. She was administered another injection called zofor as she vomited thrice that night. She was later prescribed Gabantin 100 mg for the last 3 days. She was also asked to take Topirol 50 mg morning and night dose. Macorate had been prescribed for sleep but i did not allow her to take it. 72 hours down, headache keeps emerging and the pills are popped. If it was a severe bout of migraine she mustve responed well for the drug but this is hinting something else. Most of the above being epileptic drugs is my wife epileptic? Does she need to go in for regular epileptic treatment? She was on that for 1 and 1/2 yrs , 5 yrs back when she used to have absent seizures ( frequent faintings - 3-5 times per day. MRI revealed lacuna infarct in the brain ( legion in the brain). Kindly help......
