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

We are looking into allowing expanded options for conversations (live free meetings) with friends on this support site. However, we need more friends who are comfortable with the various meeting sites and their apps. We not only are looking for hosts in the range of time zones of the Earth that we have friends scattered in but also people who are skilled in explaining how to get on to the meetings and use of the features to the friends on here are non-techies.
The idea is to allow live… read more
So I'm going back to college. I start on August 11th. Here's my deal though. I've been in and out of college since I graduated in 2009 because of Epilepsy problems. I've gone to college three other times already. Also for three different things. Should have stayed with the same track I know but I'm indecisive and I get bored easily. First time I was at the community college, I was there for my AA but I had just found out that I had Epilepsy. My GPA started dropping near the end of a year and a… read more

I ask this because the site owners and techs are not able to provide an additional search option to search for New Members. And there have been too many New Members over the years who have come once or a few times and gotten frustrated and left because they do not get the true benefit of being embraced by a large enough team to not only make them feel welcome but also be able to provide answers and often personal experience regarding any related to seizures (types, symptoms, auras, side… read more
I always tell people about the wealth of information and access to personal experience to be found here. It’s true, and new resources are being added every day!
If so, then here are some sources of details about how to navigate and perform many different actions on this site
Here are some tips that I got in response from the creators of this site -- when I asked if it was possible to put a "How to" index on the screen after logging into this site. It is not possible (due to the complexity of doing so and the cost to do so --both a major problem since this is a non-profit organization that created this site).
While they indicated that cannot make the… read more

Hi yo a few more friends
Lots of us have to stay under controll of others while some dont out of fear or need. Some of us refuse and go about on our own. Either way we all struggle either financially or body function or how we feel. How do all of you feel about your needs and has anyone ever known and taken advantage of you? If not have you ever fealt sheltered and how do you stay free even on your worst days.

I'm so curious as to what everyone's needs are. I want to see us all get the help, resources and support we need and deserve.
I'm not sure what type of support.
As I have discussed with some of you, I try to send a greeting and add all new members to my team to help to get answers for them. However, there are a lot more of you have personal experience with implants like VNS, RNS, etc. and various brain surgeries, versions of the Keto diet, use of other alternative treatments and anticonvulsants and the like that I do not personally have.
How can we improve things for them even while we consider the meetings and the likes for some of us?
