I am on Keppra, Depakote, and one that very few people here of, Zonagran. The Keppra and Depakote are both extended release and I am able to take all three of these at night so that I do not have peaks and valleys in my drowsiness.

I take Keppra Zonagran. As others have pointed out, no two people with epilepsy are the same, and no two neurologists will treat things exactly the same. While the treatment is a science, it is just as much an art. Remember this too. I don't know exactly what kind of seizures you have, or how often you have them. A good question to ask yourself when trying to determine if a medication is doing what you expect or need it to do, is, 1. am I satisfied with the control I have over my seizures; 2. are the side effects of the medication hindering my life? If you are satisfied with the answers you get from these questions, I would suggest that you press forward. We don't all get the same results, but at the same time, we don't all have the same expectations in the way of control over our seizures. For me, one or two a month, with side effects such as drowsiness and short-term memory problems are manageable. Only you can answer some of these questions for yourself.

I've been on Keppra for 12 yrs but never alone. Ive had several kinds but the one the most has been Lamictal. When I went for the 6 day EEG 2ys ago and they started reducing the Keppra to cause the seizure I was totally off of it and a seizure never occured which meant the Keppra was so used to my system that it was doing no good. It wasnt until the Lamictal was reduced that the seizure came. She cut me back from a 1000 and kept me with 2000.
