    Unexpected status epilepticus first seizure in 2009 from head injury in 1995. Bad seizures continued every few months apart. Tried many medications, but only minor relief, but still passed out and lengthy mental confusion for weeks afterward. Currently taking 400mg Vimpat, 400 mg Lamotragine and 30mg Onfi. Have not had any seizures since starting Onfi. However, they started me at 40mg per day. Cau ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking 10mg twice daily for two years, along with 600mg of Lamotrigine, and since I have started the medication, I have been seizure free.

    I take 15mg in the morning and 20mg in the evening. I also take 8 Rufinimide pills a day but is not enough to stop my seizures. Since starting onfi I went from having 2-3 gran maul seizures a day to none for six months now. Very effective and minimal side effects. Hopefully I can start taking less Rufinimide pills a day and the Onfi will keep me seizure free alone, which I think it can.

    The doctor had me start 1/2 a pill twice a day then upped me to 15 MG a day a 5 of the 9 days were seizure free(very rare) I then went upto 10MG pills twice a day. After 8 days I was extremely constipated. I was lowered back to 15MG a day but have yet to have another seizure free day. All bowel movementa during to 2 pills a day took peri-colace and/or prune juice.
