I am 100% positive that hormones are playing a huge factor in both the frequency and intensity of my seizures but I’m not sure where to start to address it. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
I had more seizures in my 40's than any other time except my teens. The seizures I had in peri menapause were also more severe, causing a loss of memory and balance. It took weeks to get over each… read more
I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.
If Q + A section was better organized, then I would not have to ask this question, but we have a support site, so we have to do what we can… read more

I went out yesterday purposely and I'm happy again! I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to finally do open mic again! Last time was 2020 and I blocked him. I spoke a little ruff to him first
My wife is on higher than recommended daily dose of Keppra, 1875mg in the a.m. and 1500mg in the evening. She is 33 and we discussed more children but I worry about her age along with medication causing birth defects and having to care for a disabled child on my own if anything happens to my wife.
Most data says K hasn't caused both defects. Most AEDs are quite safe. Dr can tell you best to get rid of any worries bout any harm to baby too. Age 33 should not be a problem actually quite young.
