Comment:
This is the best Epileptic Drug to control the Complex Partial, Simple Partial, Electrographic, and Absence seizures. Absolutely no side effect at all. It is the main antiepileptic drug which normally is considered to be an adjunctive drug.

I take it for sever cluster headaches. Several pills a day but works great. Better than the other 5 seizure meds I tried. And the side effects are minimal compared to how I feel. ED being my biggest complaint along with hyperactivity.
