A 42-year-old member asked:

Which antiepileptic medication has the broadest spectrum?

3 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Mark Fisher

Depends: To be called broad-spectrum, an AED has to be tested against a broad spectrum of seizure types. The major "broad-spectrum" aeds in common use are valproic acid, lamotrigine, topiramate, levetiracetam, phenobarbital, and lacosamide. They will differ in efficacy, tolerability & side effect profile for each patient. Often, finding the right AED regimen for anyone is trial and error.

I would add zonisamide to that list as well.

Talk to your: Therapist about your confusion. The spectrum varies from mild aspergers to more severe aspergers. Perhaps they meant that you have some of the symptoms but are not on the severe end of the spectrum. Discuss it with them to understand what they mean.

Ok but: Let's first establish whether you suffer from migraine which is often triggered by stress. If the problem is persistent, consult an eye doctor.
