Diagnosed for neurocysticercosis, taking wysolone, implanted, no result. Does carnitor increase seizure?

I was diagnosed for neurocysticercosis (single seziure) 8 months ago. I was taking wysolone along with levesam 750.

Now I am only taking levesam 250 (1-0-1).

Now I am planning for a kid but my sperm count is
Now I have been asked to take carnitor 500mg, i read that this has a chance of seziure is more, since i was already a patient of NCC, will this again result in me getting the sezuire again or should I not take the tablets?

Thank you for posting your query.

In all likelihood, your neurocysticercosis would have either got cured or reduced quite a bit by now. A repeat brain scan could help in confirming that.

A patient with NCC is different from routine epilepsy, as the risk of seizure recurrence is low if the NCC lesion has healed.

So, if carnitor is going to help your sperm count improve, you could take it and continue levesam at the same time.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
