I am taking Klonopin 0.5mg 2x daily,and Concerta 54mg ER 2x Daily for memory so he says.I think he really prescribed it to help me lose weight because I am overweight.I wanted to ask you all if there is a better anti-seizure medicine than klonopin that lasts all day.The reason I ask this is because unless I am constantly taking them every 4 to 6 hours I can't stop having these seizures.I feel better once I take them but once they wear off after I wake up in the morning I start having convulsions again or maybe I just need a short acting anti-seizure medication because I become really tired during the day and I dont like that.any questions or comments feel free to ask.

Hmmmm, ok well klonopin is one of the longest lasting benzos out there (other than xanax Extended Release, which i dont think is used as an anticonvulsion med) I would ask your doctor about something thats not a benzo to help with your seizures, because im pretty sure there are other options.
Also, 54mg of Concerta TWICE A DAY!!! Holy God, you must be WIRED all day long! thats a massive dose!
