It seems that in the description it only covers partial (petit mals). My doc wants me to switch to it because my tegretol isn't working anymore. I really like her and trust her, but I'm worried this wont work for my seizures.
I'll tell you what... they can shove every darn anti-seizure chinese (pfeizer, whatever) factory pill they want down our throats and we STILL GET SEIZURES... meanwhile our body goes thru udder chaos trying to compensate for the violent flooding of chemicals in your body. Let's see if you have to get blood tests to find out find out if your liver still works??? I quit pills period. i almost died from Neurontin as my heart stopped in the emergency ward. I heard the thing go "beeeeeeeeeeeeeep" AND i knew i was dead. Everyone started milling around the ER quickly and i was dead! I thought (right after my heart stopped) " i hope the zapper works" and it did!! I was up to 800 mg of Dilantin as the final stroke after trying EVERY seizure pill known to monkeys and man. Meanwhile I STILL GOT SEIZURES. My hair was falling out, i was slurring words and falling down... nice. I smoke you know what and it works for me... try it and see. if i smoke i don't get seizures ... if i don't i do... no pills, no harm... but expensive. i have tried 7 anti seizure pills and they are all poop (excuse me). sorry. go green... worth a try.
You are correct Lacosamide (vimpat) is for partial seizures, however it was licensed as an 'add on' to other anti-epileptic drugs, such as Primidone (Mysoline) or other medications such as Valium in order to inhibit seizures. Are you taking any other medications?
