It was suggested to me by a former neurologist, even though I had a history of being well controlled with my current meds. After reading about the possible side effects,I declined.
I have been on vimpat since before it was on the market. I was a ginny pig for Johns Hopkins. I love vimpat!! It gave me independence. With my side effects were blurry vision and dizziness. But i learned i needed to eat before i take it.
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , Best advice I can suggest is to contact your doctor & maybe talk to their nurse & let them know what’s going on & see what they suggest. I’ve not had any issues like that with it. You might look at the side effects & see what it says but Wednesday you might call & talk to a phone nurse. Sorry I can’t help you with anymore information than that. I hope things get better & your doctor can figure out what’s going on. But your doctor can’t help you unless you let them know what’s going on. Sending Thoughts, Hugs, Smiles & Prayers. 🤗💜🌻🦋🙏🤗 Your friend in Texas, Becky
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , I began taking Vimpat in November 2019, 1 100mg tablet twice a day. Then it was in either 2020 or 2021 that after I had a seizure & my blood work showed that my Vimpat level was below normal & so my Neurologist increased my Vimpat by 1 tablet of the 100mg I believe it was but then I began to notice my fingers started shaking a little & I told my Neurologist I couldn’t take that extra Vimpat & so we went back to the usual dosage of 1 100mg twice a day. Other than that I don’t think I’ve had any issues with it. I also take Depakote & have been taking that probably for more than 14 years. Your friend in Texas, Becky
