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.
