My episodes (tonic-clonic) were, by and large under control (about every four years). Now I'm trying to switch to lamotrigine. I say 'trying' because in this transition period and almost immediately after being weaned off valproate completely, I have had three seizures and all in the space of four months.
Of course, I wouldn't be attempting the change if I weren't thinking about pregnancy in the next couple of years. Needless to say, epilepsy making such an unwelcome comeback after such long periods without it is making me extremely anxious.
Has anyone had similar experience and still been successful with lamictal? (My dose has increased to 250mg twice daily) but I'm concerned this is about the maximum for monotherapy?
