Has Your Primary Care Dr Ever Prescribed Rescue Meds Or Just Your Neurologist?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Only my Neurologist. My primary Dr. says she doesn't specialize in the field of seizures so she rather my neurologist do it.

I’ve never had my primary Dr. prescribe my rescue meds, plus I rarely see my primary Dr.

My pcp usually does not prescribed anything that has to do with my siezures, but when I had to come off Vimpact I couldn't get to my neurologist fast enough. My pcp prescribed my old meds.

I have not have rescue meds, Trish. I probably should have, but the neurologists never prescribed them.

No cause they have only added meds that had the same help as it did for my seizures so they could use less medications.
