Topamax - with Epival and frisium


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Epival - 1500 mg

Frisium - 10mg - 20mg (depends on day)

Kinda getting tired of chunking up as a result of the damn epival however need it for seizures -  was wondering if anyone had success in using topamax as a replacement for epival.  I am already feeling like a zombie from the above so that wouldn't be new ;)   Have a neuro appointment next week and was going to see what he thought but also curious if anyone here has also been in the same spot.

Thanks

Would these be temporal lobe seizures? Because Topamax hits the temporal lobes really hard.

See the Crazymeds Topamax page for details.

They are temporal lobe seizures.

As for the epival - the side effects are non-life threatening but they are such that I am continuously irritable, gain weight, extremely lethargic, poor memory  etc etc etc.  Have had lots of GI issues as well.  With all that being said the seizures are limited - not gone.  My desire I guess would be able to try something that would get me through the day without falling asleep on my desk or chewing someone's head off for no reason - maybe topamax isn't the one but there might be something better.  I was thinking yopomax in conjunction with FRISIUM may be a solution,  guess the neuro will let me know on the 19th.

Just thought I would pose the question
