Although anti seizure medications can be a blessing, they are not for everybody. Your neurologist is in the best position to determine which medication is right for you. He or she will take into consideration any other medications you are taking, as well as other health issues that may come into play. Also, these medications can be very potent and even habit forming if not monitored. Certainly what is recommended for an adult may be entirely wrong for a child suffering from epilepsy.
This being so, never assume what is best for yourself. Sit down with your neurologist and discuss your options before coming to any decision. Also keep in mind that there is always a possibility of an adverse reaction to whatever drug may be prescribed. It may take a little trial and error before arriving at the right medication for you.
