Comment:
Vimpat is the first drug to finally reduce my focal seizures along with Lamictal.I tend to miss my doses too many times and I pay for it.You need to eat before taking it or you will become dizzy. I take a 10 mg Valium to make my seizures stop. Takes 10 to 15 minutes and they will quit.Usually have a headache after.
