I have been on Vimpat since November and I have gained over 35 lbs has anyone else had this issue?
I have been on Vimpat for 21/2 years and did not experience major weight gain. I would bring this issue up with your doctor. Vimpat is known to cause weight gain (but not severe so i would def talk to your doctor about it) but perhaps there is another medication that can control your seizures without such a drastic weight gain. Best of luck to you!
