I did lots of research. A friend of the family was a leading edge environmental doctor that ran tests using some fancy machine many years ago. He prescribed many vitamins told me which foods I was allergic to, and made a special serum to put a few drops under the tongue. I know about cannabis oil. The problem is I am on a very low dose of medication once daily and have absolutely no seizures. Other people are on several or many medications multiple times a day and cannot control their seizures. The Phenobarbital works and is cheap. For many people the biggest issue is finding something that works. I have no seizures. When changing medications under a doctors care, driving privileges are suspended. Too many issues. When I go in next month I will see what the doctor has to say.
When I was first treated by this doctor 13 years ago he wanted me to see a neurologist which I did. The neuro wanted me to take one of the newer more modern anti-seizure drugs. At the time I was getting the pheno 100 pills for $9. That was more than a 3 month supply. The new drug at the time would have cost like $500 per month. I told my primary MD that I just wanted the pheno and didn't want to see the neuro again. He has been accommodating me since.
