My doctor brought it to my attention a few months ago. She said the words "possibly seizure free" that really got me listening. To just get my independence back, not relying on or bothering others to drive me around. I've been on it for about 3 months now. Holy crap it is expensive though. I'm currently on Lamictal and Keppra as well. I hate taking so much medication! Again, my doctor said I might could slowly start coming off of the other medication as well. Ever since I've started taking it, sometimes I do get a "high" feeling. My heart rate has never been normal so there is no change there for me. Haha
I almost started to take it but after looking up the medications side effects i didn't feel comfortable dealing with hallucinations, paranoia, headaches and irregular heartbeats to name a few side effects. So, i decided to pass on it.
