Why am I tired all the time. Why does it take me days to recover from a busy day. Why do I forget so easy.

All of the issues your experiencing is caused by the side effects of the meds. Your seizures can also cause these too.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member, I see you’re on Keppra. That could be one reason you’re so tired. This past June my new doctor tried me on Keppra & it was just making me way to tired. It has a side effect of tiredness & also sleeplessness. At night it got to where I was having trouble sleeping & so the doctor gave me a sleeping pill, Ambein, & that helped but then the next day I would take my first dose of pills that included the Keppra & things started all over again of being so tired & I’d have to take a nap every day, even if I couldn’t go to sleep a cat nap helped. I told the doctor if I was ever gonna get back to work that I couldn’t keep up like that. So she took me off it in August & said to continue on my Depakote & Trileptal that I’ve been on for probably 10 years or more & my pediatric neurologist put me on those years ago. Due to long term use of the Depakote I found out 2 years ago that I’ve got Osteopenia in my left hip. Like other Team Members have said, after our seizures we’re often tired & weak. Praying things get better for you. Your friend in Texas, Becky
