Whats your seizure med (s) ?
April 28, 2009 at 1:52 PM

Just curious what everyone takes for there seizures?  And what are their side effects? 

I take Keppra at 2000mg in the morning and 2000mg at night.  I also take half a tab of Ativan at night.  I have noticed over the years of seizures and meds my memory and thinking in general isn't as good.  It literally takes me longer to think.  I am taking ginko to try and counteract that side effect.  I feel tired alot more too.

    I take 150 mg of topomax at night and 25 mg of topomax in a.m.  My memory is shot and I am always tired.  I am also currently looking for something natural to help with side effects.  Although they had to keep increasing my meds cause I kept having seizures.  They just increased again and neurologist looking at adding another med-another apt. next week.  I've been having neurologist apt. about every 3wks lately the last 3 mths. 

    Take Care
