In Reply to: Re: epilum - I would like to know what people's experiences with this medication - thanks posted by Graeme Wattam on November 19, 2000 at 05:42:35:

yo,I have quite a lot of experience with Epilim.I was on it for a number of years seizure free.However when i was about 18 I had a couple of seizures and my dose was increased.I got bad side effects.I went from 13 to 17 stone and slept about 16 hours a day and was slow in thinking.No other drugs seem to work though so i am back on it now(aged 22).I get hand tremors and i feel slightly dozey and slow but i am on a lower dose this time around so it is controlling my seizures.I hope this helps.

: Hi, I'm slightly passed the child stage of life but have been on epilum for 17 months without
: any further seizures. The only side effect I have had has been an occasional slight tremor
: of my hands - I have read that this can be normal after prolonged use. I am very cautious
: not to miss my medication though. Would appreciate any other comments from epilum
: users, especially re the tremor of hands. Hope to hear from someone 'out there'

: : My child maybe put on epilum (tegeratol appears not to be totally working). I was wondering
: : if anyone had used it and could give me their opinion on the medication (side affects that sort
: : of thing).

: : Thanks very much

: : sarah
