My mom has complained of "balance problems" for the last few years. She attributes it to the lamictal she has to take to prevent seizures, but I'm wondering if this could be related to the dementia? There are days she has a hard time walking and will say "my balance is really bad today".... would a med side effect vary day to day?
Her old neurologist tried her on other seizure meds, nothing improved as far as the balance problem. She did a lot better mood-wise on the lamictal so she ended up back on lamictal.
Just really hoping these balance problems don't progress, so I want to understand what is causing it. If it is the med, then it shouldn't progress, right?
