Other medications have been used but had side effect and did not control seizures. My sister-in-law has been on this drug for 32 years with excellent results.

I was on this Medication for over 30years! No side effects at all! I gave birth to 5 Babies with No Side Effects or Birth Defects! I have gone through HELL trying to find a Replacement for Meberal :-( since 2011 An Intelligent Drug Company would Read these Reviews, Buy the Rights... There are 1,000s of People who would VOLUNTEER for the FDA Trial! It is very upsetting that the FDA caused this They required the company (Lundbeck) to STOP making Meberal bc it was created before the "Rules". FDA told the company they had to put it through 5yr Trials, then they could start mass producing it again. This was after Decades of People using it! :-/ It wasn't financially feasible to the company to Stop producing a medicine, put it through 5yrs of Trials and HOPE the Patients who had to take a different medication would Come Back. (I would go back to Meberal in a Blink of an eye!) HERE is the article about it: https://www.epilepsyct.com/article.php?id=122#:~:text=05%2F16%2F2011,would%20no%20longer%20be%20produced.

I went 11 years seizure free then FDA wouldn't allow the grandfathering of this drug so the company stopped making it. I have had a seizure each year since.. Thanks Government for nothing..

I have been taking this since 1980 with NO side effects and the seizures are controlled. Mebaral is the ONLY drug to control my difficult seizures, I tried so many other drugs with no help. I may die due to Lundbeck Pharmaceuticals discontinuing the drug. I am terrified. My friends who are in the Stock Market are dumping this company and companies dealing with them. They blocked Generic with clever statements and now this, not a reliable company. The medication was a gift of life for me, hopefully a good company will somehow obtain it and do something good, with a nice medication like this.
