I'm 29 male and have been on Epilim for a year and a half. I've noticed in the last 6 months I have put on fat around my stomach, I'm a profetional dancer and exercise alot so I think it's the Epilim. It's hard to deal with as I've never had a bit of fat on me. I want to go off it but not sure what else I can go on? I was on Dilantin but it was the worst thing I have experienced, I was mean and depressed and couldn't concentrate or learn anything and I didn't want to be in public at all or around anyone! I sugest to never ever go on Dilantin for epilepsy.
