  • Effectiveness
    Major (for epilepsy)
  • Side effects
    Moderate
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 900 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Side effects are experienced after each dosage, even years after taking the med. Positive effects are a reduction of pain for about three hours after each dosage. I recommend this medication ( after FDA approval of course) to anyone struggling to find seizure control with other methods. My seizures dropped from 150 a month at the start of this med to under a dozen a month. Ordinarily I have to take a 90 minute nap after each dosage.
Cost: < $25 monthly
