I took phenobarb (Mebaral) after the first gran mal at 21. I continued it thru grad school, a very demanding program at UW. The phenobarb left me tired and woozy. I basically outgrew the gran mals with one exception in 2018 but absence seizures post exercise started about 15 years ago. When I resumed cannabis use about 10 years ago, the absence seizures stopped. They have not returned. How many docs I wonder ho treat w/ heavy medication have ever used it.
