    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 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

    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 Depression

    I have been taking Keppra for a week (1500mg / day). At first I could hardly sleep and hardly felt any tiredness. After three days, that changed to the opposite, to limitless fatigue. I am tired all day and can barely keep awake. Even after a 12-hour sleep, I’m still tired. I can hardly go about my job and find it hard to concentrate. Before, I needed sleeping pills to sleep at night, but this is no longer necessary. I also feel dull and weak. After my work, I’m so exhausted that I can hardly stand on my feet anymore. In addition, my mouth is always dry, no matter how much I drink. I was very satisfied with the effect at first, as it boosted the first three days. Now that she has changed into permanent fatigue and sickness, I am by no means satisfied. I hope that the tremendous fatigue subsides after some time and does not restrict me in my everyday life.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    I had my first epileptic seizure on the 20.07.2010 during the car ride, by luck and the hand of the Lord I missed a concrete pillar by 5cm and a tree with 30cm d like. As if by luck, my then girlfriend and me nothing happened. At that time I was only 19 years old. The first diagnosis when I came to me was epilepsy, I had previously known that it is a disease, but how complex and life-changing it is, unfortunately, I had experienced first-hand. I had a total of 6 seizures, after the 4th seizure my medication was raised from 1-0-1 to 1.5-0-1.5 Keppra. My last attack was the dreadful attack for me, then I went to school and wanted to do my state-certified mechanical engineer. I suffered him in the morning, I was in full consciousness, had three blackouts of an hour, could not talk anymore, that I wanted to say came not harsh, it was just unintelligible sentences without context. I could not even hint with hand movements what I missed because my whole right body was paralyzed. After a few minutes, the ambulance and my father were contacted, after which I was driven to the Erlangen Hospital. After my 3rd attack, my father has a Naturopathic family doctor who has tested me kinesiologisch and found a Hydrokolontherapeutin. Both of them diagnosed me with a worm in my colon that excreted the poisons that got through the colon directly into the bloodstream. This apparently resolved one month before my first attack, an optic nerve inflammation in the left eye, the epilepsy and a final optic nerve inflammation in the right eye after my last attack on 21.10.2010. By regular Hydrokolontherapieen initially 4 per week and then slowly crawl out, the colon again learning to work independently. As a result, the worms were eliminated. After checking that I no longer have worms, I started to sneak out of the Keppras. Initially 1.5-0-1.5, then 1-0-1.5, 1-0-1.25 and 1-0-1 per day in 3 month increments. When I took the 3 grams of Keppra a day and went to school, I had the first 2 weeks suicidal thoughts, was totally listless, spent virtually all day in bed, could not concentrate überhaubt, simple math tasks such as 6×8 I could no longer Calculate head, had total loss of appetite, have lost 10 kg in the first week because I drank up to 6 Lieter water a day and have eaten nothing more, I was practically completely unpowered. My dad got me to do a juice cure to Wolker and to do a therapy of a Romanian naturopath. I made Lieter homemade fresh juices on day 1, 1 Lieter juice from 1kg carrots, 3 fist sized apples and a big lemon for the eyes, 0.5 Lieter juice from 600g carrots, 200g red beets and 200g cucumber to detoxify and a juice 800g carrots and 150g parsley root for the nerves / brain. The therapy of the Romanian naturopath consisted of five capsules for the nerves in the brain and to calm, in addition magnesium and enzymes likewise for the brain to the support. Because epilepsy is also triggered by poor nutrition, nutritional deficiencies and vitamin deficiencies. Among them is also important to take a lot of vitamin B. It is a good supporter of the brain. After applying all the therapies, I am now daily on 2 grams of Keppra and found my will to live again. Bike again, go out again and meet old friends. I have always talked about what I experienced, it does not help me to sink completely and to supplement my therapy. Now I am about to start again with the technical school and to regulate my life more and more. What was very important is that I was often to convalescent doctors to do EEGs and check my physical condition. That I was not in danger of re-accumulating. I hope I have encouraged you to announce the fight of epilepsy and to try to get off the medis. Those are not a long-term solution !!! However, I have to tell you that not everyone can do it! The trial is definitely worth it! Sincerely, Thomas G.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    Keppra: Severe tiredness, tinnitus as noise in the ear (pulse – blood flow), cold, double vision, dizziness, drowsiness, sex dysfunction, sleep disorder, mood swings, depression, brittle fingernails, leg cramps, back pain, difficulty concentrating, thinking blocks, irritability, anxiety attacks, listlessness among others I had previously taken the drug gabapentin (Neurontin) for 4 years and with the conversion to Keppra my neurologist wanted the NW as fatigue, sex dysfunctions, concentrate disorders, slow thinking and mood swings, irritability, aggressiveness u.a. eliminate the drug gabapentin. She said that the Keppra would make me more cheerful and balanced and also no sex. Disorders include. That was a fallacy and I’ve obviously fallen from the rain to the skies. The Keppra showed significantly heavier NW than the gabapentin.

    As already described; no desire for sex and caresses have unfortunately become unwanted side effects as well as digestive problems, sheep disorders; sometimes fatigue and difficulty concentrating. The seizures are a side effect of the surgery, have been reduced to a few in the first 2 years after the operation, and it is estimated that I can do without the medication in 3 – 4 years. TOPAMAX 50 has also been tested recently, after two weeks of use it has severe depression, blurred vision, indigestion, severe motor difficulties, speech problems, persistent tingling in hands and feet, orientation problems. But was immediately put back on Keppra.
