I have been taking dilatin now for 6 years. My latest MRI was great but the EEG showed I was having petite
mal seisures in my sleep. My neurologist wants to gradually move me over to dilatin. I am scared to death
because I have been seizure free now on dilatin for 5 years. I started last week taking 2 tegretol in the morning
and 2 at night. I work midnights and the first night taking the medicine, I had to come home early because I was
so disoriented to the point I felt drunk and had a pounding headache. My doctor believes that Tegretol will control
both types of my seizures. Does anyone out there have some encouraging words about Tegretol?
