My child was put on this medication after continuing to have seizures where he would drop and fall and injure himself - at school, at home etc and it was embarassing and kept him from getting a license. He stopped having all seizures when he got to 6 mg of the drug. He did experience some side effects (very tired, a little dizzy) but these got better over time.

My child was put on this medication after continuing to have seizures where he would drop and fall and injure himself - at school, at home etc and it was embarassing and kept him from getting a license. He stopped having all seizures when he got to 6 mg of the drug. He did experience some side effects (very tired, a little dizzy) but these got better over time. We decided as a family that it was a trade off we were willing to take. The doctor also backed him off from 3 medications to only 2.

I have been on it for 4 months and I am experiencing severe constipation, unable to push stool through my colon. Still having break-through tonic-clonic seizures. I am allergic to milk and I am wondering if this is causing the adverse reaction. I also have developed acne on one side of my face.

I have uncontrollable Epilepsy and have been on every drug there is out there since I was 15 years old. I have been to the Epilepsy Clinic twice in my life where they take you off all meds and you are hooked up to an EEG 24hrs and video taped so they can catch you from all aspects. This drug sent me into a whirlwind of seizures that have not stopped even after being off the drug for a couple of months. It has been hell for me and my family, my husband and his mom have had to take care of me and our 9 and 2 year old boys. I do not have an aura and fall on my face anywhere anytime and this drug has made it so that this is happening daily. If you are going to try this drug I hope you have better luck on it than I did.Read More Read Less
