Has Anyone Taken Frisium (Clobazam /Onfi) During Prengancy?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi Everyone,

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