  1. Thank you for the information.
    It’s good to know that there’s light across the dark tunnel, when people need it the most.
    In the most civilized & resourceful age of human civilization, life needs NOT to be gambling with medical costs or feeding your family.

  2. This issue is the main reason WHY WE NEED some real neurologists & real drug makers & real medical ”healing” scientists to get the answer/s to stop all seizures & brain conditions relating to them. People of such who have been IGNORING what people have learned all on their own does not cut it & their are NO EXCUSES for that. We do have a life, and it NOT TO BE ONE ”where others control it” because of the seizures we have or can have. Psalm 118:8 explains it like this,, It is better to trust in the lord, than to have confidence in man. That may sound off topic maybe to some, but WHO has given you MORE TRUST with any doctor or drug, or from anyone on this earth, relating to your seizure condition ? Think of the many of doctors who wants us back in their offices as part of the money chain that NEVER gets broken as the system is working for them a a good oiled engine. So give credit to God if a doctor / neurologists helped you stop having seizures. I’d like to know him or her. These # 4 & # 3 epilepsy clinics & centers are only an IMAGE STATUS for their ego, to get more of our money, with NO HOPE of any future cure for us. If they were good, they would never Ignore what we have learned on our own.

    • THat’s kind of a dark statement, C D. But I agree, “If they were good, they would never ignore what we have learned on our own.”

  3. Has anyone have any experience with the Christian Medical insurance they have been advertising on the radio. I read a paper article, yes, paper article, before computers the best source of info were newspapers. Well anyways, the article said that there insurance was like half the price or fraction of the price of regular insurers.

    • Follow this link for the VIMPAT Patient Savings Card

      Eligible patients may pay as little as $20 per 30-day supply of VIMPAT. The Savings Card will then be applied toward any remaining out-of-pocket expense up to a maximum of $100. Eligibility restrictions and terms and conditions apply.
