It is the best med I've ever taken, but the side effects are TOO much! I've taken every med available & none worked as good, but I'm giving up.

My Dr. also didn't tell me of any of the side effects, also NEVER tested my ... Show Full Comment

My daughter has had seizures her entire life. We have used almost every medication combo there is. She has absence seizures; she seemed to be having one every time I looked at her. Than we found a Dr. who knew what to do. I will be forever grateful to him. Our daughter still had seizures but they are just a handful a day. She can learn, play and has a great outlook on life. She is on Lamictal, ke ... Show Full Comment

I have petite grand mal seizures. Really hard to control because there so unpredictable. I've been on every type of med's out there and Felbatol is the best by far.

Loss of weight is a plus. I've been on it ... Show Full Comment

The worst drug ever insomuch the Neurologist quickly took me off of it as soon as tirades of side effects began to show up; didn't even last 2 week on it and plus increased seizures as a result of it? Geesh - I would rather go to a Haunted House than to ever touch this drug again!

Comment:
I was very wary of this medication because I was told about the serious side effects such as liver & kidney failure, severe bruising, and aplastic anemia. I gave it a shot and paired it with 300 mgs Lamictal & 500 mg Depakote. I am 20 and am finally able to drive. That is how well I have responded to this drug. I HIGHLY recommend it to any Epileptic who's at the end of their proverbial ... Show Full Comment
