My neurologist has given me a prescription for Vimpat 50 mg, to be taken BID, as i was looking at reviews it was mostly all about people with seizures, i do not have any type of seizure at all, i have fibromyalgia and a history of depression after stopping all anti depression medicine i feel better, but still have tons of pain every where, so how is this medication going to help me? I know they have given people with depression anti seizure medication but when i take any of these medications i become more depressed and suicidal... So what is this medicine going to help me with?
Why did you stop the antidepressants? Seizure meds don't do a thing for depression. Antidepressants help with fibro too. Seizure meds are used for nerve pain, but don't expect it to do much for depression.
