Yup. Lamotrigin worked for me. What I thought were panic attacks were partial complex seizures. My brain would be registering a smell that I never could place (cuz it was in my brain not in the air), then the panic attack would hit. The most memorable one was while I was giving a final presentation in a law school class. Managed to finish it and dipped to go curl up in a corner in the hallway.

I’m on keppra which helps, but the rage side effect they warn about is so real. My partial complex seizures would be in the mornings right when I woke up. I felt an indescribable feeling that overwhelmed my senses and made me curl up and squeeze my eyes shut. I’m impressed you could give a presentation! Glad you’re doing better now.
