Onfi, is a new one on me.  Never heard of it, nor ever been on it.  It it causing any new type of side effects you haven't had prior.  I have periods of double vision also.  Not everyday, but once in a while, (2-3 weeks).  I have been on Depakote before, did nothing for me.  But I am still on Teg. and Lamitical .  The teg. stopped my grand-mals.  But if I take the combination to close together, I get extremely dizzy. This last for about 30 minutes, then diminishes.

I used to have longer aura's but not anymore.  I don't understand why the Onfi would produce a persistant and dry cough.  I would discuss this with my neuro.

I would like to know if anybody knows special info. on the medicines I take which are Depakote ER, Tegretol XR & New one by the name of Onfi.

  First in once was taking to much of the tegretol kept getting double vision. Has anyone got side effect of double vision? Once though of reducing the Tegretol double vision decreased. Still get it though once in awhile.

  For the Onfi, started taking Nov 29 worked great reducing good amount of seizures! Then been feeling more stange feeling like Auras that emotions(crying) wanna force out of me. Also fear like seizures going threw me.

 Right now in little of cold but going in coughing where it's more like a dry cough. On list of side effects for Onfi says persistant cough.

 Anybody going threw issues same or not I should know about the medications or combining of what? Thanks!

Hi ! Looking for some info. about Topamax withdrawal symptoms. Has this ever happened to anyone in this group ? How long before the symptoms appeared and what are they ? How long do they last ? Felt like the internet wasn't much help.

I take Lamictal Xr also.  This is another adress to check into.






These are addresses that my family physician gave to me.


Hope they are able to help out along with what Raymond sent.
