Been on phenobarbital for 8 years or so. Was also on it from 3 to 12 years old. Works better than any other seizure med has for me.

Does anyone else take lamictal get feitiegue but you have to take it multiple times a day and at night. Do you guys have suggestions obviously other than taking a nap to deal with it at work?
I've learned to take it REALLY early in the morning so I can go back to sleep and have enough before I get up for the day.
