  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I get toxic on even a slightly higher dose than I regularly take. I take it less for seizures than for headache pain (chronic headaches). It helps some, but not enough. My dose varies from day to day to keep it from going too high, so it's a little tricky to remember what to take on what day. I take over twenty prescriptions; adding one more alone didn't cause a problem, but it was disheartening to need one more drug. As for what it does for seizures, I don't actually know. I'm still having simple ones, and my grand mals had already been controlled, so I'd have to say it's not making a big difference.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Muscle twitching (fasciculations), Whole body shaking
