I have been on this drug for 20 years with no problems or side effects. I tried some others but they made me feel like I was in a fog. I wish more MD's knew about it and were comfortable with it.

This medication has really did the trick. I was taking keppra and still had seizures. Since adding felbatol to keppra I have been seizure free.
