Any Vimpat users/ Withdrawals

Sat, 10/27/2018 - 19:52
I don't know how to ask this question but hopefully someone understands this question. So I take Vimpat 50mg 2x a day. I notice that when I take 1st dosage in the morning and I wait long periods to take the 2nd dosage, approximately 6 or 7 hours, during that time I start to feel like I am going to have a seizure. I notice 2 days ago when I took my 1st dosage in the morning and I waited about 4hrs for my next dosage I did not have seizure symptoms. So does it matter how long you wait to take the 2nd dosage to not experience these symptoms.
