I currently take 600mg of zonisamide (generic Zonegran) for peripheral neuropathy prescribed by my neurologist. My regular PCP had me on 300mg for three years. It worked for about a year and a half, then the effectiveness started to wane. I'm wondering if the same thing will happen with the 600mg which is the max allowed FDA dose. I found that when taking zonisamide (generic Zonegran), the side effects along with the medication benefits is largely dependent on the drug manufacturer. Does anyone else taking zonisamide have a similar experience?
These meds don't have an FDA ceiling of how much is allowed. They have max recommended dose, either because it wouldn't help any more if you took more or it would make you sick if you took more. You're the first person I've heard of taking it for PN. Most of us take gabapentin.
