    For me, BT is just too much of the same thing. It's one thing for me to talk epilepsy, but not day after day after day. If I need to talk about it that much, maybe I need to talk more to doctor.

    Well. I talked with a pharmacist today. She is thinking that Lexipro might be best but it can lower the seizure threshold. I think all the antidepressants do. Some just more than others.
