Well, they’re using Zonisamide in dogs for epilepsy that’s not responding to regular or even combined anticonvulsant therapies. And folks are liking it.

And, anything has to be better than Keppra (which is the “Emperor’s New Clothes” of anticonvulsants)

So this is what I dredged up regarding Zonisamide and Epilepsy.

I don’t own any copyrights to the stuff, it’s really for my reference down the road.
