    Hi Eve! What meds are you currently taking for your nocturnal seizures? Are they under control? Thanks for any input

    Well going from tegretol to keppra is difficult. Doc told me that Tegretol was among the hardest drug to get off of. All together it took almost 6 weeks to go from being on tegretol to both tegretol and keppra to finally just being on Keppra. I had alot of anxiety during that time and started taking a high B Complex Potency. over time the side effects lessened but I am still taking the B Complex 100, Calcium, Magnesium . When I was just on Tegretol beside my liver count being off (its now back to normal since being off Tegretol) with just being on Tegretol I often suffered from being just a little spacey making me want to avoid sometimes going to the Mall. I don't feel that way with Keppra. Keppra just seems to bring out the anger issues but that lessens over time and for some people it can be alleviated with BVitamins.

    Hi eve
    it sounds as If I'm in a similar boat to you.
    What I'd like to ask you is about your shift from tegretol to kepra and the side effects.
    Can you explain to me what side effects you expirenced and how kepra makes you feel?
    With tegretol I've always felt a little off 100%, a little jaded.
    Hope to hear back from you, and will appreciate any info you can give me.

    thankyou
