 LAMICTAL,,, Tried & failed,,, Switched from Lamictal to Keppra to Dilantine,,, from 100mg/day to 600mg/day,,, before finally GAINED some semblance of "MERCY" from endless grandmal seziures & a whole load of Prescription side-effects.

 Controling SEIZURES seems like shooting in the dark,,, Try this, try that, one after the other, switching prescriptions & dosses ONE AFTER THE OTHER,,,, Hoping something is going FINALLY to hit the mark.

GOOD LUCK !!!

 

 

It's called DILANTIN.

Ohhhhh,,,, You are right,,, "It's called DILANTIN".

Sorry for the typo,,,, "Dilantine",,, with an "e".

 

 

 

Since my first seizure in 1977 at the age of 30, I've taken Dilantin, then Depakote, (worked well but apparently not with some of my other meds), topamax, then topamax and trileptal combined till I maxed out on both, then Kepra with trileplal and  after I was hospitalized with a dangerously low sodium level (118), trileptal was dropped and replaced by Lamictal. The kepra and lamictal combination has worked well for me. I am surprised that dilantin wasn't the first or one of the first drugs tried. It was the first ever marketed. From the onset in 1977, my neurologist told me finding the right drug or combination was like playing the game battleship. 
Good luck.
