Can zimpat be used alone? i have seizures due to my hormone replacement. Keppra made me extremely agitated. Still had small focal seizures with lamictal.
I assume you are referring to “Vimpat.” This medication is approved by the DFA to be added to other seizure medications. This means that there is not enough data to approve the medication to be used alone. However, some physicians will use these medications “off label” and use them alone."
