Anybody on trokendi and opinion of it??
Has anyone been on briviact before? I am being weaned off of Trokendi xr and starting it. I also take 400 mg of Lamictal. I read side effects of briviact and I am nervous.

I’ve been on Carbotral since i was 8, and trokendi since i was 14-15. I was hospitalized in the past 2 weeks to study my absent seizures off all medications, because i normally have auras only when medicated, until the padt year, ive recently began having absents again also.

Is there any particular epilepsy medication that damages your eyesight? I wear glasses but I am finding all the medication I am on is making my vision worse. I'm not sure which drug is causing the problem but when I go to my opticians I'm going to ask them.
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , it’s true, there are some medications that have side effects with our vision. Hearing , that I’m not sure.
It depends on what kind of medication you're taking I have nocturnal Sezuires and if I accidentally miss a dose I can go right back on my regular medication doses as all my medications are 8 hours… read more
