... to get to therapeutic levels in my body? And has anyone out there who has had a seizure (partial) found a drug, it worked, and is living a 'normal' life with no side effects??

Theoretically, after 5 doses you should have reached a steady blood level. In answer to your other question about living a normal life, I believe after you are seizure free for two years, you may begin to drive again. Not sure, depends on where you are. I have been on anti-seizure meds for my bipolar disease and I live a normal or as normal it can get for a crazy person. So, I'm not sure what normal is. Normal apparently means different things to different people. Philosophically, what is normal? Anyway, I hope I didn't confuse you as much as myself.
