    Keppra for Astrocytoma; Epilepsy

    Illness: Epilepsy as a result of a brain tumor (astrocytoma II) For 3 months I take Keppra. Fatigue was the main side effect during the creep phase, so I’m fine with that. Concentration could be better. The Ausschleichphase of carbammazepine is completed in 2 weeks. Previously, I took 10 years of carbamazepine. The side effects were: fatigue, concentration and speech disorders, loss of libido, forgetfulness and mood reduction. At the end, there was a massive skin irritation (hives).

    Keppra for Absence; Epilepsy

    My daughter only had Topamax (twice dosed) for a year, but then she lost her short-term memory and tipped into working memory (concentration and memory) into the bottomless. She was from the two-way average (high school) within a school year suddenly dislocation risk … u.a. that’s why we switched to Keppra in January. Since then she sleeps a lot and is often tired; but basically she can concentrate better and the short-term memory works better. Let’s see what it looks like in the EEG. May it stop. Dear a teenager who sleeps the puberty, as one who forgets even without alcohol, his name and where he wanted to go …;)

    Side effects: Fatigue

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    Only at the beginning fatigue and weight loss, overall less physically resilient even after prolonged ingestion. Aggressiveness, abdominal pain, flatulence, sleep disturbances and hair loss remain. Overall, but NW tolerable, works great for me.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    Hello, my daughter (8 years) took Ospolot for a year. Side effects such as hands crunching, lack of concentration, abdominal pain have been constant companions. For about 4 weeks we have switched to the drug Keppra juice. I can not say which of the two medications is better, because side effects such as constant fatigue, sore throat accompany us here.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    I have had epilepsy since I was 9 years old. Unfortunately I am still not set correctly and get about 1-2 seizures per week. It now comes to me the question of whether I may operate. Have an appointment in Bethel soon. Maybe something to do with a vagus nerve stimulator. Side effects of the tablets: 1. Ever since I took the carbamazepine, I have been struggling with forgetfulness. My neurologist told me that it can come from the seizures themselves. 2. In the Keppra, I’ve become quite aggressive at times and am very fast on the palm. 3. In the topiramate, I had a slight tingling in my legs at the beginning. But what has disappeared again.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    Under valproic acid I had no side effects that I can attribute to the drug. I was well served and had nothing more to note. Just for the sake of a desire to have a baby, I was prepared for another drug – Keppra, which I did not know before. In the early days, I suffered a lot from fatigue, fatigue, lack of concentration, weakness, memory problems. These side effects have now improved a lot, but continue to exist. Side effects that I have persisted are: irritability, aggression, mood swings, increased depressive phases. Side effects where I do not know if they are due to Keppra: occasional pulsation in the eyelid, at times short twitching in the extremities (finger or leg), irritated throat / throat area

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    I take the drug Keppra for 10 weeks, 1 tablet daily with 2 tablets. Mylepsinum, have been seizure-free since that day. I feel like newborn, or as before about 22 years ago when I was seizure-free. I am now 48 years old married with 2 healthy children. Since the age of 3 I suffer from epilepsy, have already taken several medications, but always the mylepsinum show no side effects with me. Until 10 weeks ago I took daily 2 Mylepsinum + 2 carbamazepine, which allegedly did not help after the blood I had 3-5 seizures in the winter up to 8. After 3 days of the change of carbamazepine to Keppra I already noticed tremendous effects and differences in my life. My concentration is back full again, the speech disorders are blown away, no forgetfulness, no more depredations, no drift and so on. However, I have to say that I can take the Keppra only at night before going to sleep, acts like a sleeping pill for me. Actually, I should take 4 Keppra + 2Mylepsinum daily after the doctor from Erlangen Hospital, which I did not want from the beginning (I was too much). So I took as usual in each case 1 tabl. in the morning and in the evening around 18 o’clock. I realized very quickly that I was always tired and could hardly do my housework. So I only hired myself for 1 Keppra night. Since that time I have seizure-free and overjoyed to get my life under control again. I advise each patient to discontinue the medicine carbamazepine. Above all, I advise the pharmaceutical industry to withdraw this drug because it causes more harm than good. Best regards Monika Baumann

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    Keppra often causes mushy to fluid bowel movements in my case. Concentration disorders are something normal. Confusion and dizziness can be triggered, inter alia, in conjunction with other anti-epileptics, such as e. Lamotrigine. The main active ingredient of Keppra, Levetiracepam, is classified as Harmful (Xn) and the dose should only be 1032mg / day (test on laboratory rats). ** The danger of severe depression and suicide is possible. ** Levetiracepam was approved in the market in 2000. **

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    L-Polamidon: I take this for a very long time, after used for long-term pain treatment stage II drugs no longer worked, respectively. the side effects that outperformed effects. Many know L-polamidone, as well as methadone or polamidone, as a remedy for heroin and the like. Substances. However, the main application area was and is pain management. Important here would be the distinction between L-polamidone and polamidone. L-Polamidone, is 4x stronger than morphine. It is also twice as potent (more potent) than methadone. The active ingredient of L-Polamidon is levomethadone hydrochloride. The active substance of polamidone and methadone is: methadone hydrochloride. The distinction of these two Polamidonvarinaten is also important because a faulty treatment, reduced pain suppression and withdrawal symptoms may result. For example, if you take 40 mg of L-polamidone daily, you will get in the hospital only polamidone / methadone, in the same dosage, 40mg, one is underserved and the said problems occur, there are, of course, more potential problems. The effect of L-Polamidon can be described as very good (own experience). It is usually used as a mirror drug, especially in the treatment of chronic pain and must be taken so often every 24 hours. The drug delivery and duration extends over said 24 hours, if necessary. also 36h. Even in the form of drops, the effect lasts just as long. If you take the remedy for the very first time, it may be that you feel a bit weird, but it does subside. Typical side effects can be nausea and fatigue, but also drive increase, which I can not confirm myself. Basically you start under 10 drops (with 20 drops = 5mg). However, if you already take strong, group III assigned, opiates, before starting treatment with L-Polamidon, other starting dosages are possible, however, should be agreed and adjusted ONLY with the doctor. Even after many years, the quantities to be consumed do not get out of hand, because, unlike many other drugs, the tolerance effect is not very pronounced, of course it is present. It is always assumed that the remedy is taken as intended and not at whim. An often reported side effect, or concomitant, is either more sweating, resp. Hot flashes, which quickly fade away and come with no fixed rhythm, there are certainly exceptions here too. Long-term side effects related to organs are very differentiated. However, it is advisable to draw blood samples at regular intervals or, in consultation with the doctor, to discuss further options. Allderings is an effect or a consequence, even before the start of treatment, to discuss and evaluate exactly. The active ingredient of L-Polamidone is primarily physically dependent. This is noticeable, if used properly, not if the mirror is held regularly. If this is not the case, symptoms of withdrawal occur, which can vary greatly. The drug should NEVER be discontinued from now on, because depending on the duration of ingestion and dose level, a cold withdrawal can have fatal consequences. Psyschiche dependence is not at the forefront of this remedy, since the, this type of dependence triggering factors were minimized by the levorotatory form of the polamidone, therefore L-polamidone. So it does not kick when taking, at least I do not know this and it has also been described. In my case L-Polamidon helps me very well, but that does not mean that my pain has disappeared, but life is more bearable.

    Side effects: Sweat; Nausea; Fatigue
