I agree varies person to person just like medicine. I've been on at least 10 meds and some kept me up hard to sleep, and some makes me very tired.

yes with a but... no with a if. it all depends on you and your seizures. maybe insomnia or lack of sleep is cause of the med side effects. maybe it is nockternal seizures. maybe it is recovery time. or maybe it's both.

When I was young I would wake up 3 or 4 hours early a lot. After a while we realized the days I woke up early and couldn’t fall back asleep was always the morning after I had a seizure. It got to where every time I woke up early I would tell my mom “I had a seizure yesterday didn’t I”. The answer was almost always “Yes”.
