It is funny that I felt so much better (cognitively and fatigue level) on the Lamtical, but once I hit the proper dosage I had more seizures then ever. Even the dose increases were so easy for me. Then Vimpat which I had a horrible time getting up to dose, actually controls my seizures. I agree that sticking it out is really important. It took me over 2 weeks to adjust to Vimpat. My doctor was shocked that I stuck it out for that long, but I am so happy I did. Changing medicine does wreak havoc on your body. I wish doctors warned us about that part.
