That's how I cut down if… read more

Zonegram Experiences And Side Effects

Zonegram Experiences And Side Effects

Hi, I keep reading really bad things about Zonegran side effects, I was supposed to start last week, but keep postponing. I usually get 1-2 nocturnal seizures every 2-3 months, so I’m not sure if it’s even worth the change (currently on Tegretol). I would really appreciate if anybody could share their personal experiences and or effects with this med. Thanks 🙏

My son this past month has been having verbal behavioral outbursts and physical aggression towards my husband and I. After he calms down he will say "what". Is this another complication of Epilepsy or from his Impulse disorder? This is so hard and I do not know how to help him.

Does Anyone Take Zonigram 100mg???

My neuro put me on this one just this week I haven't taken it yet since the pharmacy has a bit of a problem with my insurance and they don't usually receive that exact one at their pharmacy. He told me to start off week one with one capsule then week two with two capsules and then week 3 with three capsules and stay with three.
