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.
Can Frisium cause seizures?
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!!
Is anyone here taking frisium and is drinking alcohol in general very negatively reactive with it i.e. A couple of drinks not a session.
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.
I am also now 19 weeks pregnant. Reaching the half way mark, I am… read more

Wondered how long became "regular selves" again? after seizures, I feel really depressed and down for few days after a seizure, (almost like a scared feeling), don't know if it's because of having to take clonazepam if feel any warnings or if start partial, anyone have these feelings, either with meds or seizures themselves? Anyone get side effects on Clobazam, thank you
I have an upcoming annual review with my neurologist and am thinking of raising that I’ve got SUSPICIONS on whether my medication is still working as 100% and that I may be experiencing tiny petit mal seizures.
What’s troubling me is that it could just be “normal space cadet” /“lost word at the tip of the tongue” exhaustion and not petit mal seizures at all…I hate the idea of disrupting my regime on a “suspicion” as I have no side effects right now.
Now I’ve started imagining scenarios of… read more
When you are asked to take medication in the Morning and Night when Label on the box, would you follow it to 12 Hours between taking it, or what would you think of Various time in the Morning and A Various time at Night? If you didn't have a set 12 Hour Period would you think people would have more Seizures, Because I use to work early at 6am up to Last February, but would take my Medication at 9pm for Night , so this would be over a 12 Hour Period.
