 1  Epilepsy Cough, pneumonia, lethargic My 1yr old was prescribed onfi after other medication did not work for her epilepsy. A week after starting it she developed a cough, soon after had severe congestion, was lethargic and is now in the hospital for pneumonia. All of which are side effects of this medication. Fighting to get her taken off. F 1 5 weeks

 5  Epilepsy (10 years) It has been one of the BEST seizure medications I've been on. Cognitively, I noticed an increase in my learning ability and memory. It did not effect my mood, I actually felt more like myself again (which I developed epilepsy in 2009, when I had viral encephalitis). F 30 4 years

 1  seizure control Fatigue, somnolence, unrefreshing sleep, agitation, irritation, anger, short-term memory loss, muscular pains, suicidal thoughts, Steven Johnsons Syndrome, cognition issue, mood swings This is possibly the worst med I've tried since beginning to address my condition over 41 years ago. Lack of information identifying the possible impacts resulted in many harmful stressors, the loss of a position, extreme difficulty in getting off the med. I didn't learn about the possible SJS until someone died because of it. M 50 4 years

 4  epilepsy have a tendency to fall asleep if not actively doing something. balance problems. this med has a few side effects, but they are tolerable. i have to really watch driving, as i sometimes get sleepy a little more quickly than normal. when just sitting around the house, in a stationary activity, (i.e. computer work, watching a movie, etc) will sometimes "boink out" as my family describes it. i will fall asleep without feeling sleepy. one minute i'm awake, the next, i'm asleep, but easily aroused. balance problems if i am startled by something when i am walking or turning around. i will also lose my balance if i try to look in another direction (like turning your head to look behind you) if walking. however, much better than having a seizure.

ONFI  (CLOBAZAM):  This medication is used with other medications to help control seizures. It belongs to a class of medications called benzodiazepines, which act on the brain and nerves (central nervous system) to produce a calming effect. This drug works by enhancing the effects of a certain natural chemical in the body (GABA).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
