I just read this article on generic keppra causing seizures: https://epilepsytalk.com/2010/07/17/keppra-generic-seizure-drug-contributing-to-more-seizures-side-effects-and-death/ Has anyone experienced this and if so, did taking the non-generic form fix the issue?
I got a new job. Going in the office on Tuesday or maybe tomorrow. Anyway, should I bring my rescue med to work? I think I have refills on it, but if not, I can ask my neurologist for another thing of Diazepam. My seizures are most of the time serious. My last one I was in status and one before that I had a cluster and over 10 years ago when I had them regularly, they all were clusters of 10 or more except when I was in status. I would be in the office 2 or 3 days a week, but I wasn't sure just… read more

Do you carry rectal emergency meds like Diastat and how do you feel about people using that on you in public? My son has this meds and he's still young but just wondering how he would feel when used when he is older?
So, basically, I just realized that the midazolam makes me feel more negative. I take it to stop gran mals, but it just occurred to me that it’s making me feel bad, even though I never understood before why I felt that way.
What was your experience like? I am going in the not to distant future (I should know when after I meet with a neurologist from Brigham and Women's Hospital this morning. I have never been to a center or have any testing (that I know of) other than annual (or every 2 years) EEG and the initial portable EEG for 48 hours when I started with my first neurologist back in 1997. Because my older brother had open heart surgery as a few months old, the focus back in the early 1980s after I started… read more
I have a three year old who started having seizures in June. She had drop, myoclonic and a few real short grand mals. She was put on onfi after a four day visit to children's and that didn't help anything. So they added keppra and it stopped the grand mals. Went back to children's for another eeg in July and they added depakote and it helped tremendously with her drops but she still has some after her afternoon nap into the evening. Mostly head drops but a full drop here and there. Her eeg in… read more
Does anyone have occipital lobe epilepsy?? I already had temporal lobe and was recently diagnosed with this, I’m just really confused and am experiencing a lot of weird things and was hoping there was someone on here I could talk to that could help me and relate/:
I just got home from a neuro appointment-after a significant aura last Thursday he wants to do a 48 hour ambulatory EEG. I was diagnosed with epilepsy in February based on a conventional EEG in the hospital. If any of you have had the conventional EEG followed by the 48 hour one have the results of the 48 hour EEG contradicted the conventional test? I'm about to make several major life/career adjustments based on my February diagnosis, just want to be sure I'll be doing the right thing. Thanks… read more
