Has Anyone Been On Vimpat? If So How Long And Was It Succesful?

Has Anyone Been On Vimpat? If So How Long And Was It Succesful?

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. The doctors tested one medication that was unsuccessful while i was hospitalized, before testing Vimpat over a 24 hour period, and then i was released. I’ve been out for nearly 2 weeks now, and i haven’t had any seizures… read more

Vimpat And Memory

Vimpat And Memory

Since I started taking Vimpat my memory has gotten worse. It seems to have gotten worse as my dose has increased. Has anyone else had this problem? Vimpat has also raised my blood pressure

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Ask your doc if vimpat messes up your memory. Our epilepsy is not remembering things. My friend who does not even have epilepsy tells me the older we get she even cannot remember stuff.

If You Switched To Generic Vimpat, How's It Going?

If You Switched To Generic Vimpat, How's It Going?

Did anyone switch from brand name Vimpat to generic Vimpat recently now that it's available? If so, how are you feeling?

I started generic Vimpat/lacosamide a few weeks ago after 3 years on the brand name. Still trying to figure out how it's going for me. Sometimes I feel like I'm angrier than usual and felt some deja vu sensations today. Used to have those with brand Vimpat every few months though so not anything new.

Addition Of Medication Phenobarbital, Has It Helped?

Addition Of Medication Phenobarbital, Has It Helped?

I had a intracranial EEG April 15th. Within 2 days they noticed 2 times the number of seizures, often in my sleep, than I was noting. April 20th I had a brain ressection in my right frontal lobe. I was doing great until I came off the hydromorphone and steroids. As well they changed me from Dilantin to Vimpat. I also take 2mg of clonazepam a day and am allowed 1mg of Ativan per week, the remainder of the time I go to the ER. An average of 2 times a week.

I am trying to find any suggestions for… read more
