250bid starting dose: Depending on your size you may require much higher dose of this AED and typically 250 mg bid is a starting dose. Frequently patients require much higher amount for generalized seizures control (sometimes up to 3000 mg daily divided in 1500 mg bid) and sometimes more than 1 agent is needed for a complete control.
