    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.

    I have been taking Felbatol for the last two years, it's the ONLY drug that works for me. Monthly blood tests are required to check for aplastic anemia but that is the only inconvenience. Losing your appetite isn't so bad, at least you lose weight!. It is the ONE drug that works for me!

    OMG! I have no appetite, headache, cramps, and very bad ??diarreaha??--but no seizures. Go figure. I have been taking it for 3 weeks now and it helps the seizures, but the side effects are getting to the point of almost making me give up on it. I am extremely uncomfortable.
