    Honestly, can't... Only answered q.2 b/ci it was required. Would very much like to know if this would-be a good candidate for treating my manic episodes. Usually in fits and spurts, a good estimate would be 6 manic episodes per year max. They are however, lengthy and a pain to my husband and son as well, that they endure somehow... I take klonapin in a small dose every day as a means to help my mind wind-down and generally relax enough to fall asleep within 30 min or less rather then the 2-3 hours it normally can take. I also take fiorinal w/ codeine to combat stress-related migraines I suffer from at least once per week. I take that only when headache/migraine persists. What might be the best prescription drug to add to this carefully concocted cocktail of medications so far.

    I've had MS for 11 years. Recently I've had pain in my right hand and left leg. My neurologist recommended Depakene Oral. Anyone else taking it for MS symptoms? If so, please share your comments

    my husband has grand mal seizures due to a motorcycle accident he had 30 years ago. his seizures have been controlled pretty well for the 27 years he's had them. since june this year he's had 4 seizures and his dilantin level is 9 eventhough he's been taking his 400mg of dilantin every day. now his neurologist ordered depakane oral twice daily and i wanted to know if there's any contraindication to taking the medication together with the dilantin.
