I've been taking Primidone for years and years and I'm

I've been taking Primidone for years and years and I'm pretty much under control. I drive a car, eat well, occasionally play oldies on the radio and lead a low-key but satisfactory lifestyle. My doctor is trying to get me to switch to keppra, but after reading about all the bad side effects, I'm leaning toward staying put. Sure, I slur my speech a little and my balance isn't great but all in all I'm satisfied and afraid I'll just be worse, not better. I've asked a number of people whose opinion I value (including a RN), and they all agree with my decision to stay the course. Do you think it's wise to change horses in midstream?

I have deppression since last year . I started psychological therapy but it has to be stopped. Then my primary Dr. prescribed Paroxetine hcl 20 mg (1 a day) until I go to my next appointment on 8/24 when she will give a referral to either a psychiatrist or a psychologist according to my progress with the medication. I m 73 years old and I also take Primidone 100 mg/day for Essential Tremor by my neurologist. I still feel depressed. My question is: do these two drugs interfere with one another? I don t feel any improvement in any of my two conditions.

My 93 year old mother has recently been complaining about night sweats. She has never had them before and I was wondering what could cause them. The only change she has had recently is her Primidone medication that she take for tremors. The doctor increased the dosage when he took her off valium that she had been taking for about 45 years.
