Has Anyone Been On Vimpat? If So How Long And Was It Succesful?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

If You Switched To Generic Vimpat, How's It Going?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Sudden Hives- Vimpat
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son has been in Vimpat for 3 months now. Today out of nowhere he developed itchy bumps all over his hands and feet shortly after his first pill in the morning. The rash went away as the day went on and then came back later tonight after his second dose of Vimpat. I’m concerned because the Vimpat seems to be helping him (no seizures since he’s been on it) but now I’m worried we might have to change meds again. Anyone react to medication like this months after starting it?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Vimpat And Memory
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

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.
