Had to go to 4 500 mg Keppras because 2 1000 mg pills wouldn't go down too easy.

I had to do something similar when I was on Keppra. I could handle 1000 mg at night, but had to split the daytime into two 500 mg doses.

I'm not surprised I'm on 750mg keppra tabs and they are borderline too big and sometimes get stuck on the way down

If you mean types of pills (such as Trileptal) etc. as opposed to how many (like 1 1/2 Trileptal). I would say 4 at night.

I'm so used to it (taking meds) that the pills go down before I can even get a sip of water into my mouth. Now I can swallow pretty large pills w/o water, too.

Right now it's 2 1/2 in the morning and 5 at night.

Morning: 500mg depakote, 150mg topamax
Night: 500mg depakote, 150mg topamax, 100mg amantadine, 7.5mg zyprexa

The amantadine is for tremors and zyprexa is an antipsychotic. Depakote doubles as a mood stabilizer.

And, I swallow 1 pill at a time lol, I have a high gag reflex.
