This New Med

I’m not entirely happy with this new BRIVIACT that I started taking. ONE reason is the price. Holy Crap! This expensive (tiny) pill is one that I take twice a day.

I can’t recognize if this tiny new pill is actually helping as good (or better) than the Depakote ER. I haven’t had any new daytime seizures while on the Briviact. I don’t know if I’ve had any seizures at night, while sleeping. Right now… I’m taking the full-amount of Briviact and I’m only half-way through getting off the Depakote ER. Still working through this LONG process of getting off Depakote ER. Thankfully, I chose to not be in any hurry.

So far… I’ve had the serious thought of just staying on only half Depakote ER (where I’m at right now), and completely dropping the EXPENSIVE Briviact. We’ll see how all this goes. I’ll let you know. Need to talk with my New Neurologist first before completely going this way.

I want to hear about any other medical choices.

I am feeling better being on only half the Depakote ER. I sure can talk better now.
