Disagree with Rx: First, not clear to me if you possess a VNS device, but removal can increase sz frequency. Furthermore, you are taking too many seizure meds, as after the first two, the benefit of the third is NO MORE than 3-4% improvement at best and the 4th is clearly egregious. You are best served by either surgery or the VNS unit, and you need to see an epilepsy specialist to get some direction here. ...Read more

I've read horror stories on chlorpromazine (tardive dyskinesia, chemical lobotomy, death). How likely are those serious side effects on 12.5 - 25mg?
Perplexed: Why are you to take a phenothiazine in this day and age, as the use of this class, other than Haldol and Compazine (prochlorperazine) is almost non-existent currently?
