 1  Neuropathy pain and MS Burning on skin over my entire body, eyes burned. Sure made neuropathy seem much worse. It even burned when I breathed. I've never had any kind of reaction like this. I'll go back to the gabapentin. F 52 2 weeks

 4  Epilepsy Was on Lamictal for a couple of years and had the memory of a goldfish. When I switched to Zonisamide, I felt so much better and clearer. One big problem... now I have 3 Kidney stones. Passing kidney stones is one of the worst kinds of pain you can imagine! Other problem, I started having partial seizures again (thankfully not the Grand-mals)and I don't want to really up my dosage of a med that gives me kidney stones. Needless to say, my neuro and I are looking for a new med that will work for me. If you are taking this med, drink LOTS of water (at least 3 quarts a day)! If you start having cloudy urine, add lemon to the water you drink and think about calling your Dr. You may have a kidney stone. F 29 2 years

It is unknown how zonisamide works to prevent seizures.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
