Dilantin

Dilantin

I took Dilantin for a few years as a child. I'm not sure why my doctor switched me from Dilantin to Tegretol, but I'm assuming it's because I broke through on it. I really liked it, but I suppose what I'm on now is best for controlling my seizures.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Since then, I've been on numerous forms of Tegretol,, Tranxene for a short time, and currently, Leviteracetam(Keppra, in addition to Tegretol). Chelsey, what does VNS stand for?

Starting Felbertol, Any Advice?

Starting Felbertol, Any Advice?

I just started taking Felbertol, and so far it's working great. Almost seizure free. But...I know it can cause liver damage so am doing bi-weekly blood levels/labs. Any experience or advice when taking this drug would be great, I know it's a delicate if not dangerous drug.

Does Anyone Take Felbamate/Felbatol? Looking For Information On It.

Does Anyone Take Felbamate/Felbatol? Looking For Information On It.

My 3 year old was just put on it a couple weeks ago. Onfi & Keppra did nothing for her and Depakote was working but not 100% so our epilitologist said he thought adding Felbamate would be a sure stop for my daughters drop seizures, which it has but her speech seems worse - she's often hard to understand and it seems like her sentences are broken up when she's talking. She had a very full vocabulary before this all started 4 months ago. She also is very tired and walks around like she's drunk… read more

Absence Seizures Info

Absence Seizures Info

Can anyone suggest in-depth reading about absence seizures? Most of what I've found online so far is the same basic info thats on the Epilepsy Foundation website. And to be clear I'm referring to generalized absence seizures, NOT complex partial seizures. It seems like a lot of people refer to the latter as absences which can be frustrating!

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

I use to go to the Mayo Clinic for my seizures but someone had to drive me there since i can't drive because of my seizures. I had my whole right temporal lobe removed when i was 5 years old. Then… read more
