Changes in Behaviour

My 8 year old lab has suddenly changed from being a gentle, loving family dog to a nervous wreck. After tea he parades up and down, he is constantly panting and tries to hide. He has always been frightened of strangers but not of the dark or loud noises, ie fireworks and thunder. He has been epileptic since a puppy, could it be his medication causing this change in behaviour.

It could be the medication. I advise that he is given a thorough check out by the vets treating him. It is possible to check the blood levels of most mediations for epilepsy and this may be worth doing.
