... believe it was due to running out of my medicine for over a week. However I saw my neurologists today and he wants to get off of Depakote (he says no one uses it for seizures anymore but this is not what my pharmacists said) and go on Fycompa. After reviewing the side effects of this medication and the exorbinant costs I am very skeptical about changing medications after 18 years. The reviews for Fycompa aren't promising. Any assistance out there?
