Dilantin
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I took Dilantin for a few years as a child. I'm not sure why my doctor switched me from Dilantin to Tegretol, but I'm assuming it's because I broke through on it. I really liked it, but I suppose what I'm on now is best for controlling my seizures.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Since then, I've been on numerous forms of Tegretol,, Tranxene for a short time, and currently, Leviteracetam(Keppra, in addition to Tegretol). Chelsey, what does VNS stand for?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

The thing about that is that every person's immune system is not the same, so it will work for some people and not for others. That's how all medications are for different people.

Yes. It’s one of the many side effects. This is already a fairly high dose, but if it’s increased, it can cause irritability or verbal aggression. See if the doctor tries to increase Keppra, that… read more
