Any advice for meds for gran mal seizures. Unfortunately I have had them if I don't take my meds.. Klonopin now.. cheap & in the benzo. family for the reason I have them.. from a dr. cause Dilantin wasn't working anymore, nor Tegretol, Keppra, etc. Dr.'s giving me a hard time now for taking this but I don't have insurance and am very scared to go to E.R., which I did once to get a different RX, Librium.. then read it was a benzo.. tho doc said to wing off of it in 4 days... what??? I've been on this med. for like 5 yrs. now due to kids & a car accident & doc giving it to me. Help.. any advice would be appreciated.
