Has Anyone Been On The Meds Listed Below? Has Anyone Had Many Side Effects?

So my medication is getting changed because of my liver, I was wondering if anyone had been on any of these? Lacosamide Zonisanude Perampanel Topiranate I want to know what kind of mood changes everyone has had and side effects? One of these is going to be the next one I’m on and I don’t want to choose another one that makes aggressive or anything, thank you in advance!

Zonegran did me bad. I only took it 6 days. Called my doctor and said it would be ok for me stop it since i had not been on it for very long. I think it really made me feel so doped. I couldn't handle that. He changed me to trileptal along with my keppra and lamictal. They all make me so sleepy after i take them. But i guess all seizure medicines do.

Zonisanude I had major side affects, memory lost, slurred speech, it was horrible. I haven't try the other medication.

I’ve been on all of those but the zonisimide. The Topamax was a nightmare but the other two are fine. The Permapanel (Fycompa) finally gave me the best night’s sleep I’ve had in a long time.

I lost 25 pounds on zonisimide. I was overweight. Now I am maintaining recommended weight for my height and build.👍
