My 13 yr old child is currently taking lacosamide and 2 other drugs. How do you know if she is taking enough or not enough.
Very few meds have blood levels done. When the meds are studied they figure out the necessary dose for the proper effect. If the person has no seizures and no side effects, then they are considered well controlled. The dr will monitor her liver and kidney functions as is done with meds that someone is on for a while. If she would seizure then she'd need more, or if it caused a problem for her, then less would be tried.

Since being on lacosamide I've noticed my memory is worse. Is this a common problem with lacosamide?
