Has anyone used Artand or Piracetam ?? If so, what were the results? Has anyone had success with drugs other than Klonopin? Ann Doyle

Ann I have tried Artane with no sucess. But everyone is different as you know and reacts differently. Ann I got my first botox injections three months after myectemy. Sounds like are overdo. I'm so sorry you're not doing well. I do have chronic eye infections after the surgery.

Is that fairly common to have chronic eye infection after surgery? What do you do and how often to you have it

Look for my e-mail Ann. I don't know if chronic infections are common or new. I'm new to this game too. I have blephritis which apparently will not go away. What do you have?

Blepharitis will go away if treated properly and on-going sanitary eyelid conditions are used. First an antibiotic prescribed by the doctor should be used then (for the rest of your life with beb) you should cleanse your eyelids every day with baby shampoo or an eyelid cleanser. Warm, wet pads over the eyelids help the blepharitis initially as well. Everyday you put drops/gels/creams in your eyes make sure your hands have been thoroughly washed, and use a paper hankerchief (for example) to pull open your lids (instead of fingers). If you use a night mask make sure it is washed every day as well.

I had blepharitis even before I got beb and then a few times afterwards - its no fun. Now using more sanitary methods I'm not getting it anymore - thank The Lord.


I wish you luck with blepharitis.

I was seriously thinking of trying the piracetam but since delaine is not doing as well as i thought she would I've kind of given that idea up. Also it's a pain in the bottom to get.

Hello everyone. I have been lurking around your bulletin board for some time now looking for new treatments for BEB. My mother has had BEB for about 15 years. She is on a variety of drugs, none really help. Botox does nothing at all for her. About three months ago she started on Piracetam. She feels it has made a difference. It has also made her a lot sharper mentally. There were certain times of day where she would slur her words a little, because of her meds I think, now that never happens. Julie
