Hi Rebecca, My daughter Emily is still on Vimpat it has been the best for her seizure controll. The only thing she had major double and triple vision problems from 20 minutes after taking it for up to several hours. The doctor is having he take her dose at night after she is ready to go to bed and go to sleep. She takes 600mg Tryliptol in the Am and 600 tryliptol and 150mg vimpat in the pm she takes her Tryliptol at the normal time and takes the Vimpat at the time she lays down. It still gives her double vision but it is when she is asleep or laying down.

I am on Vimpat 400mg/day and zonegran 500mg/day. Adding vimpat has produced side effects: I can't sleep at night (at this current dose only); chronic constipation; lethargy; decreased energy/focus/concentration; very drowsy several hours after taking it. I really don't like it. Zonegran I like, I tolerate it well, but with vimpat I am not happy, but if it stops my seizures, then I guess I could live with it... I hope it works for your daughter.
