I am. I had an ave ridge of 4 seizures a week. Started taking it 4 weeks ago. Had 1 seizure the first week and non since. I think it is a miracle. I am building of the medication for epi. I have more energy; no more migraine, no more rashes , I sleep without pill's and a lot better than I did with sleeping pill's. My mood had stabilized again and my pain is soooo much better. Only wish I had known about this 15 years ago

Well I have had three seizure this year. but I'm not taking Levetiracetam..I'm using cannabis for my epilepsy I've been fine and felling good no more seizure..when I spoke to my neurologist  he just look right through me and offered me driffent AED.. But one of me work colleagues AED's for there epilepsy have not been nice to him. That's why I'm keeping in natural. CBD oil hard to get but cannabis dose the job.

I'm not going to try get into law here I'm just saying what works and it's only here in the uk the not allowing us choose our medication but around the world excepting the knowledge that it works. When companies like GW pharmaceuticals that are based here in the UK and making billions of pounds of something that dose not work 👍 Someone been lied to over the last 55 years... Go have a look at Epidiolex one of there epileptic drugs

Hopefully it will change very soon for us tax payers over here in the uk Liz .. I pay tax for the nhs to be told what I must take when I'm sick🤔 I don't think so I think it's a joke.

The CBD oil that CBD brothers sells in the uk is legal now. No problem with that anymore. Have a look at the website or facebook page
