I also just started having seizures way scary, i was in my living room one minute the next i was in the er with tubs in and out of my body. It was crazy, they saw seizure activity and prescribed me dilantin and then my doc gave me phenobarbital which makes me DEPRESSED! I see her in a few weeks and god i hope she helps me. I take xanex and it helps, but there is somthing else to it! I feel your frustration. They are scary but themeds are scarier!
