CBD Oils Vs. Epidiolex
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor has tried signing me up for the new Epidiolex CBD Oil. I have questions on these topics. Have any of you tried the new Epidiolex and haven't or had any seizures while taking this? What is the difference between this specific "Epidiolex" and other CBD Oils that could be offered?

It's helping me some. My doctor put it on it about year or so ago. It hasn't stopped the seizures. But, I do believe it's helping.

Has Marijuana Helped You With Your Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’m using marijuana tonight for the first time to hopefully help calm or even stop my seizures. I’m not expecting a miracle, but hoping for some relief. Seizures while I’m sleeping are the worst for me. I’m on three meds but really hoping this might be of some benefit. How has it affected any of you who have chosen this path? Positive or negative? Thanks for your input and support! ❤️

I know it can help with epilepsy, 23years ago my rollups fags was spiked with cannabis, and it helped control my seizures, even though I never knew it was in them, I found out I was seeing a drug addict, so I left him after a 4 week, relationship. But now I wish I could have it legally.
