Thank you for posting your query.

In my opinion, your previous medications- tegrital and epilex were better than the current ones. Diamox is not a very effective anti-seizure medication.

So, please discuss with your doctor regarding this issue, and also the fact that you were better on the previous medications.

In addition, you should also take the correct dose of medicines- 10-20 mg per kg body weight for tegrital and 15-60 mg per kg body weight for epilex is the correct dose.

Best wishes,
