BRIVIACT made my son angry at times. He became aggressive when things went wrong. Switched to Cenobamate which seems more effective in stopping the seizures, also on Lamotrigine.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello, Friends.

Anyone On Vimpat And/or Briviact?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, I’m on both briviact and vimpat and I’m wondering if anyone else is in either or both of these and could let me know what side effects they have if any.
