Additional Meds

Additional Meds

My neuro is reducing my Carbamazepine and wanting to add an additional med to better control the seizures. Has anyone else has this scenario and if so what med works well in tandem with Carb? I am new to the seizure world.

i take keppra, phenobarbital, then i take probiotics, kale capitals, milk thistle, and vitamin c. the problem with meds are you have to approve added meds by a dr. vitamins are less than the meds and the dr doesn't have to approve to take vitamins.
