Hey guys, I am new to this forum but I am not new to the seizures. With that being said I have tried pretty much anything under the sun. I stumbled on to an interesting article about CBD oil. They have a solid amount of reviews of people becoming less and less likely to encounter seizures. I was just curious if anyone here had tried it? Cheers, Kwright

I can't help everyone but I have some ideas. May I suggest talking to your doctor about a med called LaMICtal, If that dose not work, I went a whole year without arua or seizures taking a martial arts class. It was not so much what I learned, the over 100 jumping jack, stretching, working my body at least 5 days a week.  You have heard it before," use it or lose it". Exercise make sense. As soon as I stopped everything came back with in a week. Good luck, life with out seizures can be amazing, always try new things don't let it win.

take a look at our section about other therapies. a pharmaceutical grade cbd is being tested for seizures. CBD that you can buy in any dispensary is being used but not controlled trials - doses, side effects, safety etc are not known so be very careful and talk to treating provider
