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

Help! Am I Becoming Tolerant? Do I Risk A Change In Meds?

Help! Am I Becoming Tolerant? Do I Risk A Change In Meds?

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

I'm on Keppra myself, though I'm on other AEDs on top of that, but I think you should keep a diary of how you are feeling, then when you go for your review, then the doctor can look at the diary and… read more

When You Are Taking The Medication

When You Are Taking The Medication

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.
