Used for various kinds of seizures in my 3 yr old. Only effective med after trying Trileptal, Keppra and Topamax. A pain to open each cap and administer with applesauce so ease of use was docked 2 stars for that!

I loved this medication. It was prescribed for headaches, but it also helped with my years of depression. Unfortunately, it caused severe hair loss and I had to quit taking it. What a major disappointment.

This medicine really helps prevent my horrible ongoing headaches. The only side effect I think I have noticed is that I have become very dependent on my reading glasses. I will need to have my eye sight checked on.

My 8 years son has been taken this medicine for two years now to control his absence seizures. Nausea and stomach ache has been the physical most notorious side effects, but his short term memory is really hard for him at school.
