Prevent Medication Changes…  | November 29, 2021

This letter has been created by the Epilepsy Foundation to make explicitly sure that no substitutions are made to your prescription without full consent by you and your doctor.  You might want to make a copy of it for your files.

Dear Pharmacist:

Thank you for providing me with the valuable service of filling my needed prescriptions. The purpose of this letter is to let you know that I have epilepsy and it is vital that I receive the same medication from the same manufacturer monthly in order to maintain the expected level of seizure control and side effects. Please ensure that no changes are made to my medications, including a change in manufacturer, without prior consent from my physician and myself. Please note this request in my file. To assist you, I have listed below the name, manufacturer, and dosage of the medications I am currently taking.

Thank you very much,

  3. If you have a cellphone that you can download an Epilepsy App as there were a lot more of before 2013, example Efa.org had an epilepsy app that you could track your seizures, type your seizures, medication(s) and the dosage(s). Who is your doctor! Your Neurologist of their contact numbers. The always there in every app “First Aid for Epileptic Seizures(basic knowledge!) the A,B,C’s and count.
    Additional information extra.

    – MedicAlert is supposed to be an International organization

    I downloaded my that was erased from people who accused me of being communical from the Scottish Epilepsy website that I first talked with someone after I was diagnosed with Epilepsy.
    It was the best Epilepsy app that I downloaded! My doctor liked it when he read it as did other people who work in hospitals and EMS that needed to read about ups and downs of the month(s) when my Epilepsy was the worst or statis.
    It was comprehensive.

    At least CVH is doing something right

    I wish I had that now so I had no problem.

    Broadcast abuse and Cyberbullying what is the difference other than triggering of Epileptic seizures?!
