You didn't get what I was saying. All of those other meds I mention are pro-convulsant, so I am on many that may CAUSE seizures.

Nozinan, to me, is much better than Seroquel. Seems to have a much better side-effect profile, whereas Seroquel always caused me to have akathisia. They use it in palliative care quite a bit here in Canada. In oncology, it's a good combo with pain meds.
