Zonisamide and ammonia elevated
My 47 yr old nonverbal autistic/epileptic was switched year ago due to Dilantin problems, since on Zonisamide her creatine, chloride has increased, she's gained 22# in 14 months,
We just did hormones and FSH, etc doesn't point to menopause but ammonia is 41( normal under 33)
She had over 100 on Depakote
Seizure specialist doesn't think its Zonisamide but no other med changes, diet or activity level in year so if not Zonisamide what???
If we change, dr suggests Lamictal..
Anyone go from zonisamide to Lamictal?
