As you mentioned, the effexor and remeron dosages were very high. She most likely developed the hypertension from the effexor. It appears that the doc was medicating side effects from the over medication of the antidepressants.

I agree the trileptal dosage was not therapeutic. I wonder if the doc thought that the Klonopin and the ambien would hold the seizure threshold down. Her flu like symptoms sounded like a overmedication of remeron.

She had a polypharmacy effect. When someone gets on uppers, downers, and antidepressants together, they may counter effect one another and cause more side effects. I have a feeling that her seizure threshold was lowered due to the effexor and the adderall.

Her medications and dosages don't sound therapeutic. Her bipolar was overmedicated and the seizure disorder appears undermedicated. The headaches may have been warning signs of a seizure or they could have been the result of the overmedication of the other meds.

I totally agree with you her medications and dosages do not sound therapeutic.

I would feel the same way as you about her passing. I am so sorry for your loss. A free consultation with an attorney, may be helpful to you. It can't hurt to find out more info. on the topic.

Sending peace to you
