I have fainted a couple of times but my doctor described them as seizures due to stress after an EEG. I was prescribed this medication at a dose of 75mg per day and diagnosed with minor epilepsy. However, I've been warned about its numerous side effects. Being in university, I'm worried I'd have in-cognitive functions, vision problems, rashes, etc. and i already take other medications such as glucophage. But in order to prevent the seizing, it seems to be crucial.. any advice? Please inform me if it's better to take it or not.
