Started taking this medication in lieu of lyrica....what a blessing! I not only lost the weight gained from the lyrica, but all the heaviness of the joints and the pain has disappeared. It is the difference of night and day with my life. I still have good and bad days with my fibro pain and back pain, but I have lost 24 of the 40 pounds that I gained while on lyrica. I did this with no effort or d ... Show Full Comment

I have temporal lobe epilepsy which I had surgery to correct on 7/25/10. For several years I had intractible seizures, and my body just plain didn't seem to like anti-convulsants. I suffered with side effects, some life threatening (literally), until this was introduced. I must admit, even since the surgery I have had quite a few strong auras (I get complex partial seizures) but absolutely ... Show Full Comment

I am now on my second round of taking Zonegran for Bipolar Disorder. First time maxed out at 600mg- worked GREAT but I lost too much weight after 18 months. Now, after app. 18 months, weight is being maintained with other meds. Great med for my mood stabilization (for the most part)!

Comment:
I've been on this medication for only about a month for migraines. I have only had 2 small headaches a lot less than what I was usually getting before the meds. The only side effects I experience are problems w/coordination and problems w/my monthly cycle on going bleeding as well as tired and weakness. But for the most part, my migraines are somewhat under control.
