New dosage!

450mg Trileptal AM.

600mg Trleptal, 1mg folic acid, and (new!) 100mg Zonegran PM.

Hopefully, the 75mg reduction in the morning dose will decrease the daily exhaustion, tremors, etc. I have breakthrough seizures at 450/600, though, which is why the Zonegran. Zonegran is similar to Topamax in its side effect profile, except it doesn't have the increased-eye-pressure thing that Topamax does, which was really the only unlivable thing about Topamax. The nurse: "It'll make you drowsy - but hey, it's bedtime!"

Anyone here on Zonegran?
