First of all, welcome to the forum. You have certainly come to the right place. There are lots of people here with lots of experiences that you can draw from.

I too have petit-mal seizures, since 1979 and I too am on dilantin and pheonobarb and it has been controlling my gran-mal seizures very well.


Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.

Welcome :) I'm 29 and been having partial seziures since I was 23 yrs old. It sucks, but having a place like this really helps!

Seems like you are on a lot of meds, and you are still having them. Did the doc say why?
