Do Any Of You Have Events From Your More Distant Past Completely Missing From Your Memory? .
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Since having my first several seizures a I've realized that there are gaps in my memory of single events going back maybe 15 years. I'm very sad when my husband or friends are talking about an event from the past and then ask me if I remember: when we went there... what we did ... etc. Sometimes I recall SOME of the event after discussing and getting a few details about it.

There are also events from the same time span that I DO recall
In my research I (finally) discovered a type of… read more

Generic Keppra Article
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

How To Work Around A Negative Feeling Caused By Meds To Stop A Seizure?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Try vitamin supplement B6 100mg. That helps me stabilize my moods.

Do Any Of You Have Rectal Emergency Meds?

Does Anyone Have A Child With Drop Seizures/head Drops?

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

Is there any particular epilepsy medication that damages your eyesight? I wear glasses but I am finding all the medication I am on is making my vision worse. I'm not sure which drug is causing the problem but when I go to my opticians I'm going to ask them.
