Hey guys,

I have a strange case here, I'm been "FYCOMPA" for over two weeks,but the strange thing that I will start to have seizure once I'm on 4mg. However, 2mg everything is fine, In reality if the medication is working shouldn't give a side-effect, but help out more. Am i right?

Did/Has any one have a situation like that and do you know why?

Note: I'm taking Tegretol + carbetrol and know these medication decrease the efficiency of the Fycompa.

Thank you!

I had the same situation, was on 8mg and had side effects. Cut back to 6 and everything is great.
