I'm about to go onto Episeta from Epilim, From what i gather there both pretty mutch the same drug just episenta being slower release,

I find it hard to allways remember my tablets and take them this is due to allways having a short term memory because of epilepsy, Im hoping that only taking episeta once at night for 24hours will help me control my episodes, im hoping for the first time in my life i can be sezure free,

My question is, Is anybody on this forum taking episeta or know of somone taking episenta and did you have any problems with it and switching over to it?,

Thankyou Benjamin,

Hi Benjamin

I've just post reply you on a other topic
like i've put on the other one my daughter is on Episenta
Can't say how she feels but we have seen some improvement in some area but worse in other,
It must control better her seizure during the night because she's not vomiting anymore, also before taking Episenta she started to wee herself even thought she is fully potty trained and that stop aswell when she started Episenta.
the negative is that she has a lot more cluster seizure arms and hands the worst and even worst when she concentrate ( probably have nothing to do with med but awaiting for appointment with neuro)
Let me know how you get on with it
