Hello, I was wondering why my medications aren t on thus luster, nor are other medications I have taken in the past for Epilepsy? Luster=list, thus=this. I have been on Phenobarbital, Tranxene, Zarontin, Mysoline, as well as others, and right now am on Clonazepam, which is generic for Klonipin, and Zonegran. I also know several women who are taking Progesterone to balance out their hormones during the time of their cycle. I am on BioIdentical hormones, as I had a full hysterectomy last year and was thrown full-on into menopause. There are some other medications I have heard about recently as well which aren t on thus list as well. If you want a true overview of how good or bad a medication works, you should have all of them available to choose from. Depakene is also missing from the list. Peganone was horrible to get off of!
