    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

    After a brain tumor was diagnosed in July 2009 due to a generalized seizure, I take Keppra for prevention. The tumor was 80% removed in August 2009. Because of the scarring of the brain tissue or possible growth of HT repeated seizures can be triggered, I take preventive and continue to use Keppra 1000 mg in the dosage 1-0-1. Had no further seizure so far. Side effects with me are a moderate increase in weight (but can also be related to it, since I have stopped smoking), total fatigue in the time of 19:30 – 21:00 clock, associated with very strong sleep disorders (about four awake phases per night , every two hours), weekly approaches of minor depression. Headache and muscle pain also occur sporadically, but keep within limits. Occurrence of this aura with increased salivation and comical sensation as experienced before Epis. What bothers me most is the libido loss. I did not know yet. Hidden side effects can of course also be related to the brain tumor surgery or the remaining remainder of the HT. Price / performance is of course positive, because the costs are currently still fully covered by my health insurance.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    Suffering from a head tumor since my birth and thus deformation of the brain space. Here, during my puberty, epilepsy broke out, something that was not clear to me at first. Only after a motorcycle accident where I described the experience I was transferred to the head clinic in Erlangen and have been there for 15 years patient. At the beginning I was treated with Timonil here was the seizure frequency to about 1 month back, here were the side effects of hunger, laziness and depression and anxiety. After my carpamazedinspiegel was too high, after 11 years of taking, the treating professor completely changed the medication to Apydan and Keppra. During the conversion, the seizure rate went up sharply (up to 1 daily) and it took about 3 – 4 weeks until the dosage worked. At Apydan 1200mg-0-1200mg At Keppra 500-0-1000mg The side effects are so far fatigue, total lipid debuffing, nervousness (fingernail bite), depression and severe tremor. But the most important thing is the seizure freedom for 2 years, even if the side effect of Lipidoschwächung is very disturbing in a partnership.
