I have a grand mal seizure once every 6 years. I’ve had 4 in total. I’ve seen a new neurologist after my recent seizure who wants me to start lamotrigine. My previous neurologist was of the opinion that I didn’t need medication because my events were so infrequent. My concern is that I’m going to be taking a toxic medication for the next 5 years without guarantee that I’ll not have another seizure. What are peoples thoughts and experiences of lamotrigine.
