Tiagabine

Alternatives to Tiagabine

There are several alternatives to tiagabine for controlling seizures. This can include other seizure medications (see Epilepsy Medication), surgery (see Epilepsy Surgery), or even -- in some cases -- a special diet (see Epilepsy Diet).
 
While tiagabine is often effective and many people tolerate it well, it does not work for everyone. It may also cause bothersome side effects. With so many different treatment options for epilepsy available, people should not settle for a treatment that is not effective enough for them or that causes troublesome side effects.
