OK just a question..Have any of you SEEN the listed side effects to this drug???? I'm not so sure if I want to be on it any more and I PLAN on speaking with my Dr regarding what I found out. I am putting this out here just as a precaution.. these are the "possible" side effects not definite and I found this in the 2002 RN Drug handbook 22nd edition. Page 432
(not listing all or it will take a long time and a lot of pages)
[B]CNS:[/B] (nervous system) Abnormal coordination; aggressive behavior; apathy; depression; difficulty with concentration, attention or memory; feeling of euphoria; possible tonic-clonic seizures; hallucinations; insomnia; speech problems; vertigo; fatigue; SUICIDE ATTEPTS;

I saved the best for last under Muscloskeletal they list BACK AND LEG PAIN...

Now "I" know (and I hope that you know) that this drug is mainly used for seizure patients. It has only been recently used for Migraines and even more recent what we use it for... the Neuro pain for sciatica or sciatica like leg or foot nerve pain or discomfort.

Use this as information... not as a war cry.. I just want everyone to know the truth ... if the drug helps you WONDERFUL.... WHO KNOWS it may be the wonder drug? I know I have been having some really strange side effects and I'm glad I got some answers.

Thanks for reading!! Good luck all !!
