Has Anyonre Tried The Combination Of Cabatrol + Briviact

Has Anyonre Tried The Combination Of Cabatrol + Briviact

Hello, Friends.

I have tried the combination Briviat with Carbatrol before, along with Lyrica and Topamax. Once I start with Briviact, I will so much better than I don't even consider it a seizure, than after a week or so, I start to experience more seizures than usual.

Currently, I am taking Carbatrol + Fycompa + Lyrica. I have been thinking to re-take Briviact again. I know there is an interaction between Briviact and Tegretol, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried/ trying this combination… read more

Medication could have been working to control seizures- so instead

Does Anyone On Here Take Briviact?

Does Anyone On Here Take Briviact?

My neurologist put me on briviact almost a year ago on top of my lamictal dose I’ve been taking since I was diagnosed. It has “knock on wood” stopped my seizures entirely. I was having them weekly and I haven’t had one since last September. And, the only reason I did was because I ran out of it. If anyone else out there takes it, do you get any of the side effects? Anxiety and depression are the top side effects and I experience both and I’m not sure if its just my normal mental health issues or… read more
