Migraines/Seizures relief what to do

Patient: Good evening. i have suffer with migraines since i can remember. Oct 3 I had a seizure(first one that I am aware of, and found out that i have had more then just that one) so they put me on seizure meds. They first put me on depokate ( i had bad side affects) and then now they are weening me off of it and putting me lamotrigine.
