i have recently been prescribed epilim for migraine attacks but I feel much worse taking this medication. I haven't slept due to trembling through my arms, legs and head. It's uncontrollable and tiring! Needless to say that I'm heading back to my doctor ASAP!

LEGITIMATE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH MUST BE TRULY INDEPENDENT OF POLITICAL INTERFERENCE

We heard your concern for a lack of new research into Antibiotics on ABC Radio National [Thursday 11th July 2013] with great interest and prompted me to write to you.

In 2005 I spent 2 months in Royal Hobart Hospital and ended up with 3 Brain Abscesses instead of ONE at the most.

Eight years ago the doctors and nurses could not work out why the infections were not responding to the regime of 24 hour antibiotic infusion.

On April 1st 2013 I had the first brain seizure and from day one I was administered Epilim [Sodium Valproate]. By serendipity, this time, I arrived in the RHH with a finger infection which day by day become more and more infected. It had become so badly infected it took one of the young nurses brave enough to treat, clean and bandage.

I strenuously argued with the other neurologist [April 4, 2013] that I had been administered Sodium Valproate before in 2005 and was convinced that I had had serious ADVERSE reactions even after that drug ceased on my discharge in April 2005.
I was discharged on Thursday 4th April 2013 with antibiotic tablets AND 2 packets of Epilim 500mg to be taken morning and night, allegedly to prevent another seizure.

This year, by Sunday I recognized the suicidal feelings, and took 1 tablet at night for another couple of days and then stopped.

Reviewing the April Fools Day event, almost 5 months ago, on Sunday 25th August, and with hind sight I am able to finally tell my shocking story to the world. From my own bitter and avoidable experience I am, now belatedly, convinced the 6 weeks on Epilim [2005] actively negated/inhibited/counteracted the antibiotics to the NOW, provable fact that Epilim will, and, did increase, and multiply the initial infections to the extent of killing the patient.

Back in 2005 I thought the suicidal feelings were due to the massive amounts of damage I had sustained. I had to learn to speak and to print and write again. It was the third abscess in my left frontal lobe that did ALL the cognitive damage.


So that this very serious life threatening, and Public Health travesty/event will never happen again this information and news must, and will, be broadcast to the world.
