I'm new to the healthboards, but have been having grand mal seizures since I was 14 (I'm 26 now). I've been on numerous meds but nothing seemed to truly work. Dilantin stopped my seizures but made me so sedated and depressed I couldn't function. Lamictal worked for moods and seizures, but only for less than a year. Kepra once again brought me no seizures but the depression and sedation became unbearable. I'm now starting Zonegran but am getting to feel a bit frustrated, if not hopeless. Any ideas, words of wisdom, or anything that has worked for anyone out there. Thanks Guys.
