Have you looked into the vns implant, that's what I did. I use to feel that way all the time, now I just have the occasional monthly seizure. The vns works surgery is a bitch and have something implanted in your body can be alittle overwhelming at times but the benefits definitely out way the annoyances

So far no medication has helped control my seizures 100 %. I've been on new and old meds. A few of them I was put back on for awhile. Been on generics and name brands. And no matter what meds they put me on , I still have the chance of seizures.

There are so many different medications that it's hard to say medications don't work. I have been on Onfi with Trileptal and it is the first medication that has ever worked for me.
