Hello TxAdvocate,

Please use WebMD's Drug & Supplements Tab above to learn more about Potiga. There may be user Reviews that can tell you more, too.

I can tell you this: We all react to meds Differently. It will depend on your system. So, as for seizure control: Give your new med 4-6 weeks. If side effects are intolerable or seizures are Still occurring after that time, then tell your DR. Helpful Tip: By eating nutritiously while titrating onto this med or any seizure med, most side effects can be diminished & even eliminated. Plus, start a Daily Journal. (More Info on Journals under Tips) Breakthru seizures can be expected during the titration period, but, Should lessen or Stop once your system has a 'therapeutic amount' of the med in your system. Therapeutic doses are different for each of us, also. So, your DR may increase the dose or use an add-on med to assist. Call your DR ASAP if you develop a Rash!

I do hope you will keep us posted on your progress. I know others' will be interested in knowing how you fare on this new med. HUGS! And GOOD LUCK!

Love Candi
