    Degradation of Fine Motor Skills

    I'm taking 1000mg of Keppra and 300mg of Lyrica twice a day for JME. I've noticed over the last 6 weeks or so (it's when I started these new dosage levels) that my motor skills are starting to degrade.

    Introduction

    Hey there, I thought I'd go ahead and make a forum post to introduce myself since I had started to browse around on the forums. I was diagnosed with JME in November 2011. Although the dx is new, the condition is not. I started having spasms in my neck, shoulders and upper arms around the age...

    Weird change in seizures!

    Lyrica - y'alls experiences?

    My neurologist and psychiatrist talked and decided to add 50 mg of lyrica twice a day to my medications. Its only the second AED I am taking. They suggested it because I have had horrible trouble sleeping for the past several months and that is a seizure trigger. I tried ambien, lunesta...
