Just a week ago, my Zonegran dose was bumped up to 500mg. Nothing much interesting has happened in the last week - which is certainly good news, to be sure - so it's time that it go up another pill. That's right, hold on to your hats, it's time for: 600mg! It's really not as exciting as it sounds, but it does bring a change with it.
As I mentioned last week, I'm no longer taking all of my 400mg pills at night. Zonegran does have a longer half-life than Dilantin (or so I'm told), which means that I could take all 6 pills at night, but it just seems strange. That, and that's a lot of pills to take at once, and the Zonegran pills aren't exactly small, you know. So last week I dropped down to taking 3 of them at night and 2 in the morning. Today I picked up an extra one in the morning, so now I just take 3 whenever I'm brushing my teeth. Easy to remember. And I have a monstrous bottle for a month's supply. It's really rather impressive what a 50% bump in dosage will do. I go back in next week for an ambulatory EEG. Turns out that I don't have to have an MRI after all.
At least not yet. That's cool.
