    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.

All bowel movementa during to 2 pills a day took peri-colace and/or prune juice.

But she ended up going a remarkable 10 month period com ... Show Full Comment
