I have been taking Klonopin two times one during the day and one at night for the last month. I take Lamotrigine 300 in the morning and 60mg of cymbalta for years for depression. I have a birthmark surrounding my left eyelid and left front forhead. Lately my left eyelid swells up everyday. I have Sturge Weber Syndrome also which causes seisures also.Thank you
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.
Hi there ladies & gents. I have just joined this group and it seems really nice and welcoming
I was going to ask something, has anyone had any sort of memory trouble when taking the lamotrigine medication? I was on 100mg 3 times a day and my memory really did seem faint. I was getting really worried about this but the doctors didn't really do anything about it. I have had the lamotrigine decreased as I am taking a higher dose of keppra now but really would like someone to write back if they… read more
Your welcome . Happy to hear that it help. I wasn’t even sure if I was clear at explaining.
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.
Today I have been put on lamotrogine aswell as keppra, does anyone have any advice? Will it affect me much taking both of them?
My daughter is on lamictal. We are at a pretty high dose. But we still have issues with her Myoclonic jerks from her JME. We are controlling big seizures. But hoping that this will help these morning Myoclonic stop.
Mine is 300mg bid
Only 2 grand mals since 2015 and monthly absence seizures
I take 250mg morning and evening. This has increased slowly over 8 years.
Has anyone been on Keppra and had Lamictal added? My son was fine up until last week he was at 75mg twice a day of lamictal and seemed to get a bit tired the second week after each dose increase but last week he was very tired and ended up missing school. He doesn’t seem to be getting any better his energy levels are so low. As of today he is at 100mg twice a day plus the usual 1500mg of Keppra twice a day. When I spoke to the epilepsy nurse at the start she said that Lamictal usually… read more

I think it's a side effect. I'm on lamictal and depakote.
It’s definitely a side effect of being on Depokote and lamictol I am on those too and Zonegran
My daughter has been on Epilim Chrono 300mg twice a day since April 2014. She was on different doses of Lamictal from November 2014 to July 2015. She was taken off that as it wasn't working and put onto Keppra. She has been taking Keppra 750mg in the morning and 500mg at night. She was doing fine until two weeks ago. She started getting extremely tired and dizzy at school - the school actually phoned me to come and fetch her. Tuesday I kept her at home, and on Wednesday she went back to school… read more
