Does Anyone Here Take The Medication Briviact?

Does Anyone Here Take The Medication Briviact?

I'm about to start taking it. It's a fairly new medication and I'd like to know more about it

I take 50 mg along with 150mg of Vimpat. Both 2x a day and it's working. Both are the lowest amt of meds (dosage) I've ever needed. Even though I do get drowsy a bit, exercise and heavy proteins help in that area. It is really worth it. I'm even handling stress better now. I think that's because I don't deal with the adverse side effect of fatigue anymore. Either way, good luck, hope it works!

Oh I can relate to you @PhillipHowlett. When I was on Keppra I was very edgy. Mood swings as you know triggers seizures. My head was in a whirlpool, hard to focus. Sorry to hear the Brivact isn't working for you though

I have been taking briviact for almost a year now with my meds,onifi and clonazepam and it's a good medicine to be on for me . It help me be a little more motivated and helped me with my wanting to eat more and get out and do though that I want to do for myself and with my son and family and has kinda helped with the seizures and fatigue. Hope it works for you.

Thanks guys. Im about to start it tomorrow. I'm taking oxtellar and vimpat right now.

Is it true that you start at 50 mg? Like you dont need to titrate up to that?
