Has Anyone Taken Frisium (Clobazam /Onfi) During Prengancy?

Has Anyone Taken Frisium (Clobazam /Onfi) During Prengancy?

I have absence seizures and I am on 250mg Lamotrogine twice daily and have now added Frisium/Clobazam. Lamotrogine in pregnancy seems safe but Frisium/Clobazam not so much. Interested to hear from anyone who has been pregnant on Frisium/Clobazam and their experience.

Use Of Frisium With Lamictal And/or Keppra

Use Of Frisium With Lamictal And/or Keppra

Howdy Folks, 
Like a lot of people, stress and anxiety have been the main triggers for my epilepsy over the years. Just wondering if anyone has used Frisium along with Lamicta and Keppra or any other meds for that matter. I would really appreciate it if they could give me an insight into how they reacted to it. In some people it will have a calming effect which had helped some people with epilepsy. 
Wishing you health and happiness!!

Keppra And Frisium During Pregnancy

Keppra And Frisium During Pregnancy

Hi Everyone,

I've had JME epilepsy for 20 years. I was always on Epilim which kept me pretty well seizure free. A while back, my fiancé and I decided that we would change meds as recommended by my neurologist so that we can have a baby.

It wasn't as easy as first expected and I had a couple of seizures, trying to transfer over to Keppra. My neuro added Frisium which seems to have worked and I'm now over a year seizure free.

I am also now 19 weeks pregnant. Reaching the half way mark, I am… read more

My daughter is 3 weeks into Frisium, how long does it take for the side effects to settle, loss of co-ordination, chatter in her head, change in voice, mouthing motions etc, or is this as good as it gets for her on this med?

I'd also suggest talking with your nurse practitioner and/or doctor (depending on how the clinic operates), they are there because helping people who are going through this makes them feel whole, no… read more

Memory Loss With Certain Medication?

Memory Loss With Certain Medication?

Hi there ladies & gents. I have just joined this group and it seems really nice and welcoming
I was going to ask something, has anyone had any sort of memory trouble when taking the lamotrigine medication? I was on 100mg 3 times a day and my memory really did seem faint. I was getting really worried about this but the doctors didn't really do anything about it. I have had the lamotrigine decreased as I am taking a higher dose of keppra now but really would like someone to write back if they… read more
