: : Hi Ronnie- My son also has epilepsy. He has been on tegretol for a few years (he is 15 yrs. old). We recently switched doctors and found out his tegretol level was toxic. He was put on lamictal two weeks ago and had an allergic reaction, so he has been taken off lamictal today. The doctor prescribed zonegran (100 mg/once a day). Our pharmacy has to order it, because it is so new. We have to wait 3 days. I'm concerned about waiting the 3 days and I'm also concerned because it is so new. How has your son done on this medicine so far?
: hi Peggy
: You shouldn't have to wait three days for any med, switch pharmacies. Mine can get anything in 24 hrs. My son isn't on zonegram yet but it is an option. We've tried teg, dilantin, trileptal, depakote, and now keppra. still no control. i can't find anything on zonegram online, very unusual. Let me know what you learn.
: Thanks liz
Hi, My 5 yr old son was diagnosed with seizure disorder in september 2000. he has been on tegretol and is now on depakote and just today was placed on zonegram. I cannot find any information on this drug. My pharmacy will not be able to get it for at least 24 hours but my doctor gave me enough samples to last him 2 weeks. for anyone who needs information don't forget that your pharmacist can provide you with information.I need to know how this medication has worked for anyone who has been on this medication for some time. Thank you Ericka
