For Seizures: Had epilepsy since 14 now way over 60 and been on phenobarbitone all my life. Doctors have tried new ones on me but they had side effects whereas Phenobarbitone have been good for me. Epanutin caused gums shrinking and were bad for my liver. Now been put on Keppra and I cannot keep awake and ear hurts. Docs leave my pills alone please.

For Seizures: I have been taking it for 15 years and no major side effects. Even took it while pregnant. The doctors recommended as a safe medicine to control seizure and my baby was fine and I was fine. Thank God!

For Seizures: Taken this medicine for decades and so far no sides effects or damage to the liver. Works very well if taken daily at or near the exact time.

For Seizures: It has worked for me. Other seizure medicines caused me severe side effects. It does make me sleepy, so I take it prior to going to bed at night. Otherwise no side effects or alterations in behavior.
