Has Anyone Had Success With Fycompa?

Has Anyone Had Success With Fycompa?

I tried it for a short time a stopped because of side effects. I was thinking maybe we didn't give it enough time. All other meds I have tried have been ruled out due to severe side effets.

I take the generics of keppra and lamictal. The third drug added was fycompa. I call it my miracle drug as I call my neurologist my miracle worker. When the fycompa was added I became seizure free. I’m not sure if the outcome was because of the drugs and dosages or because I started on Fycompa. I have many of the side effects that you all spoke about. I was living in a bad mental place. I’ve been seizure free for two years. My thoughts are that I’d rather deal with the side effects than deal with the seizures again.
