Discussions that mention zarontin

Epilepsy board


My daughter was having absence seizures but they have stopped with the first medication. She's taking Ethosuximide (Zarontin) which our neuro says is the first drug of choice unless there are other types of seizures happening. I think that Lamictal was used for another type of epilepsy for a while and is NOW being used for absences, so its a pretty new drug to these kind of seizures. I might be wrong but you can ask his neuro about it.
