I have suffered from complex partial seizures for nearly 30years, and have tried every drug. However, I was given Zonisamide literally to keep me quiet. To my amazement I have never felt so good however, I have an upset tummy and am having full on but limited fits. I am at present taking 25mg twice a day. Does the upset tummy go and what dose controls seizures completely in a 40yr old woman. I also take 1000mg tegretol p/day. Thanks
Hi Sammy Real happy for you that you are finally after all these years feeling better this is a good reason to keep up on new medications,Well like the tegretol you Have a drug that works very different on each person.So you do have room for change if needed but there is no one dose that well answer your question each person is different hope you well know and seizures well stop.Dr.may have to do some blood work to make sure everything is going okay have you been taking this with food that may stop the upset stomach just a small amout so it wont' mess with your adsob.of the drug.you want to get all the benifit you can now that your are finally feeling better.Just keep checking with your doctor,on dose Chuck1957
