If you take epilepsy medication, has the packaging or the drug ever looked different from your normal supply? If so, what did you do?

For example, did you take the different version, or ask your pharmacist or GP about it?

How did you feel about it?

If your version of medication suits you, it is recommended that you get the same version each time. Download our Letter to your Health Professional to help you get the right medication. epilepsysociety.org.uk/Abou...

I asked my GP to prescribe 'Tegretol', which he did. The packaging changed recently, but on checking, it was the same manufacturer.
