Like most people I've had a very up and down experience with epilepsy and medications. I've been on far too many to list, the set I'm on now has stopped my t/c seizures however not fully. I also twitch a lot and get quite dizzy which it doesn't help. So the last 7 months I've had none while sleeping, but suffer a lot of side effects. Not wanting to eat, I've gone days without sleep, depression and bad bad headaches. My neurologist and family doctor are against medial marijuana use so won't give it to me legally. Since adding it in to my meds about 4 months ago I have not had any big issues with the jerking, headaches and depression. I really don't see the issue with this drug, I would much rather have just that than chemicals packed in to a pill. Marijuana is a natural plant, how much worse can it be than man made chemicals. In any case it help me a lot, too bad it's a crap shoot of what I get. Different strains have different effects and I've come across some that make things worse, but the ones that work work very well.
