@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member Im allergic to Lamictal. That crap gave me the "steven johnson syndrome" and burned all my skin off. I do know that CBD totally works. Weed period works for me and im not a weed smoker. Its just these doctors dont recommend it and i dont understand why??

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member my worst side effect was dilantin and depakote. they made me go from 1 seizure a hour or so to clusters of seizures a couple of minutes apart. i went to the er. tell me do you know of alternative meds? mostly the keto diet and cbd oil? research it because keto went from 1 a hour to a couple per day. and the cbd oil went from a couple a day to seizure free.
