    Prescribed for severe episodic migraines and daily chronic headaches with neck pain. I have only been on this medication for 1 week and already have seen a drastic improvement in my headaches and neck pain. As in its gone completely! And my mood is so much better, I don't feel depressed and tired anymore. I feel like this is a miracle and I hope it lasts.

    Was prescribed this medication for generalized seizures. First six months I felt anxiety and nausea. Once that subsided I like myself again and no seizures.

    I took 50 mg once and right away noticed unpleasant side effects to include: sore throat, dry burning eyes, couldn't sleep as it took me 3 hours to get to sleep, my sinuses felt swollen and numb. The next day I woke up in a stupor, had a weird dream, slept walked and throughout the day things smelled weird and funny.
