Banzel (rufinamide): “Effective from the lowest dose, it stops seizures immediately, after 5 days on average, the dose is increased towards the optimum dose, the number and severity of seizures are significantly reduced, tolerance to dose-dependent anti-epileptic activity develops, but it is a very valuable drug for resistant epilepsy.”

Banzel (rufinamide): “Super happy my daughter has gone from 100 plus seizures a month to under 10. So truly happy and thankful! No major side effects it does make her extremely thirsty and she can only drink room temperature drinks. If colder it makes her cough as if she is chocking.”

Banzel (rufinamide): “Until Banzel, I was taking Ativan at least once every day. And the after effects left me really in a bad mood and sometimes aggressive. With Banzel, and my other seizure medicines, I haven't needed Ativan since December of 2009. I can even get out of the house. It works for me.”

Banzel (rufinamide): “It works for my daughter with minimal side effects. One thing though is after over a year of taking it seems to be losing some effectiveness. Trying Onfi with it now.”
