Body Tremors, Sleep Deprivation, Cough And Asthma, Symptoms Of Epiliv ?

I am pn epiliv 500 twice a day after being weaned off Carbamezapine 400 mg twice a day which had caused alarming depletion of sodium reserves in my body over 15 years. Am at present also battling a lot of side effects due to steroid overdose during relentless bouts of cough and asthma while I was admitted in hospital for a suspected TIA. I have body and voice tremors, sleep deprivation , memory lapses which had peaked in spelling and coherent sentence construction dyslexia at one point, incoherence, impaired motor co-ordination, particularly laboured walk, during certain phases of the day, and muscular pain my arms. But I am a little confused about whether these are steroid related or due to an entirely overhauled medical regimen for epilepsy and other ailments like hypertension and TIA. Could any of these symptoms be traced to Epiliv?

Welcome to healthcaremagic, May be many reasons besides medicines. My request is to explain all these problems to your treating doctor & leave it to him how he treats or tacles. Even if you are fully explained the reasons, your mind and condition is not in a position to understand rather it may be more painful for you. Don't be in any kind of confusion. Doctors will do their best to bring you in your normal condition. I hope it helps you.
