PLEASE is there ONE type of epilepsy medication without a BAD side effect? Over forty years with epilepsy, I swear I have tried the lot, EVERY time had to stop type of medication because of side effects! Zombie type effects [nicknamed 40 minute pill; 40 minute before able to give an answer], affected thyroids [voice!], extreme tiredness, Parkinson's disease type effects, extreme tiredness and no effect on epilepsy, losing one's temper[latest one!], different onset for a seizure [not ready for fit greater injury when falling!], just no effect at all on epilepsy [off as soon as possible with that one!], even tried cannabis made epilepsy worse, etc, etc!! To be fair have other serious medical conditions, bad NF2 and scoliosis which might be another part in the equation? Would surgery be an idea, could be a neuroma from NF2?
