I take it for seizures and it's very effective!
Unfortunately, everytime I wash my hair I see one of the side-effects of this drug. It does cause- Quote from the PDR--"minor hair loss." Great! I have a lot of the stuff though.

The sad this is that it also can screw up one's liver. I'm being withdrawn from this drug as my blood work shows that if I continue to take it I could be in trouble. Still if it doesn't bother you, it can be a good medication. I see no depressive effects from this drug whatsoever but we are all different.

Stay well,---Charlie S
