I took for many years. Did not notice that. It was probably the best med that I took. Everyone is different tho.
I was on and off it before the month ended. That was around the yr. Of 2010. It at first I was struggling with balancing and foggy mind. Before the end of the month, I was raising the Vimpat dosage and reducing dosage on the med I was weaning off. That’s when I really got hit. I felt very overdosed, my mind was beyond foggy , and I could not walk. I had to crawl my way to my bedroom.
Love vimpat, it changed my life. No mood swings for me.
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , I’ve been on Vimpat since November 2019 & haven’t had any problems with it making me angry. I take 1 100mg twice a day & one time when I had a seizure & the fact that my blood work showed my blood level for my Vimpat was below the level it should be & so my Neurologist increased my dosage by like 1 100mg but my fingers started shaking & so I had to go back to just 1 100mg twice a day, even if it would be below the regular blood level. But that’s the only problem I think I’ve had with the Vimpat. It’s the Keppra that other team members have reported that it can cause anger issues & mood swings. I took Keppra for about a month in June 2019 & stopped because it made me so tired that I had to take a nap every day & eventually I started having trouble sleeping at night & so I got off it. Well, if you continue to have problems you might mention it to your doctor. Your friend in Texas, Becky
