Hey, i take zonegran everyday for seizures. I was wondering if you can get in tanning beds while taking it. I know alot of seizure meds you cant. Also i have lost 20lbs while taking this. Does anyone that takes this or know if this makes you lose weight. Thanks.

Dear Nicole717,

I would not advice using tanning beds wile using Zonegran, I do not know much about Zonegran, also anyt anti seisure medecines are generally not adviced with tanning beds. Also. loosing weight whle taking anti seisure medecines are common in some cases, but its individual. If you have other symptoms except loosing weight I advice you to see your local doctor.
