Keppra

Keppra

I’ve been on Keppra for 18 months, it’s worked very well, I had a surgery two weeks ago and I feel like I’m starting to have jerks in the last few days, anyone else ever had it stop working? Specifically after a major surgery?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

The only thing with Info it's a Controlled substance just like Vimpat that I take.

I have Myoclonic seizures (jerks), but since being put on Keppra, God has blessed me with no jerks, seizures, nothing!!! I take 500 mags., 2xs a day...it’s worked amazingly for a month...how long before they increase doses usually?

What Can I Provide My Team When I Am More Confused After EEG LTM Than I Was Before?

What Can I Provide My Team When I Am More Confused After EEG LTM Than I Was Before?

I have not been on to provide any answers and words of support for my team on the friends on my team because I cannot understand myself after the time in the hospital. The Tegretol/Carbamazepine is gone and has been replaced with Keppra, but I don't understand what are side effects of Keppra and what are simply after effects of the EEG LTM. Do you have any suggestions on finding out which?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

When I hear people say seizure free for 1 day or 2 days 2 weeks etc. The longest I had was 6 months. Its what I call my new normal.

Any One Have Relief By Using Cbd Products?

Any One Have Relief By Using Cbd Products?

I currently take Kepra and was told it may be triggering my episodes. And was told to try cbd oil or Charlotte's web. Has anyone found relief using this method instead of pills?

Change In Medication

Change In Medication

I went to an epilepsy clinic today and they think that I might still have some infection because I take prednisone everyday - even though I have been on them for 12 years. They have also prescribed me Brivaracetam with the plan to take me off Keppra because of the side effects and it being an old drug. Does anyone else take Brivaracetam and if so how good is it? does it have side effects? the clinic wants to try and get me having one seizure every six months. Is this realistic?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member yes. They lowered the dose after my video EEG last month. It works best for me a long with zonegran and lamictal
