Phenobarbital

Phenobarbital

As a child, I took Phenobarbital at night, and Tridione in the daytime. Anyone else heard of this? My new Dr.'s give me funny looks, but I know what I was taking. I was 17 when I stopped taking it.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Hi! Yes, I took Phenobarbitol at night since I was a a child and quite effective in controlling my seizures. The only side effect is difficulty waking up. You? I haven’t heard of Tridione though.

Epilepsy And RA

Epilepsy And RA

FRUSTRATED: Turns our the Methotrexate and Enbrel I take for RA uses the same liver enzyme to process as does Phenobarbital. This in turn is causing break-through seizures. They have dropped the Enbrel and raised both the Methotrexate and Phenobarbitol. The Rheumatologist was going to replace the Enbrel with Plaquenil which will lower my seizure threshold. I take other medications for both that don't affect anything else, but are not effective on their own.

Phenobarbital and Gabapentin seems… read more
