I have Myoclonic seizures (jerks), but since being put on Keppra, God has blessed me with no jerks, seizures, nothing!!! I take 500 mags., 2xs a day...it’s worked amazingly for a month...how long before they increase doses usually?
As I have said elsewhere if you are ok with keppra and you are having no seizures they will keep you on it. But my neurologist has recognized keppra is an old drug and I have been on it a long time so switched it to Brivaracetam. It has given me issues but hopefully it will get in my system and I will be ok.
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member God has everything to do with it. Who do you think gives the scientists the wisdom to create the medication and the MD’s the wisdom to use it. Js
Hopefully your dose will go down to maybe 250mg when you have less jerks, seizures a month.
As far as medication every ones tolerance is different, just like everyone's seizures are a little different
