... Hi, I've been taking a combination of Taurine, DMG, and B-Complex for a couple of months now. I have complex partial seizures that are very hard to control and,in the past, I've often switched between one medicine to the other every other month.

... Since my seizure frequency is not too high, and I never have GM, my neuro is against seizure, and has encouraged me to look around for alternative treatments.

I am assuming they... (34 replies)

... I'd suggest that you let your neuro know exactly what medications and vitamins/supplements you are taking. If you are prescribed an AED you don't want to take anything that the neuro doesn't know about.
