Gabitril Has Anyone Taken This As A Medication Combined With Another Drug Including Keppra And Lamictol Pleaase

Gabitril Has Anyone Taken This As A Medication Combined With Another Drug Including Keppra And Lamictol Pleaase

I am asking because the consultant has run out of drugs to give me and he did mention this just wondering if anyone used it as combi drug and side effects.

I've been through the whole list. Nothing's working as expected. Right now I'm on lamictal and vimpat, vns implant, and CBD oil... Still have seizures. Try avoiding your triggers

I took Gabitril for a while, and began having seizures. Once, at first, after 13 years, but at the time, we figured it was stress-related. Then, over a year later, I had, apparently, "the mother of all seizures", and then some, broke my ankle in five places, had a minor heart attack, and the grand prize was three months in a fabulous (NOT) nursing home. And a few months later, more seizures...the last couple of times I became nearly speechless. Not good. A change of docs was my salvation, since he figured out that the Gabitril was at fault. ( He's passed away, so I can't recommend him, I'm sorry!)
Everyone won't have this great adventure with Gabitril. I'm sure it works out for many more. But my clue should have been when something different began to happen.

Yikes! I've been on all those pills but never at the same time. My current neurologist said it wasn't safe to be more than 2 at a time. I know I'm totally Anti-Keppra.
