    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

    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.

    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.

    Keppra for Epilepsy

    To Ergenyl: The efficacy is good; unfortunately, many side effects accompany me, which is why my neurologist now creeps me on Keppra – as a monotherapy – so an interim report. Ergenyl: strong weight gain hair loss acne mood swings trembling libido loss forgetfulness speech disorders no hunger or satiety strong dreams Keppra: tired to sleep falling to weak body blackouts, as after excessive alcohol consumption internal insecurity Both meds together make of me a unserved people – hope, in 7 weeks, when the changeover is done, to be able to report better;) What amazed me by the way & amp; even more annoyed is the copayment obligation at Keppra, which does not exist for Ergenyl.

With Convulex (valproate) over 17 years completely seizure-free, weight gain, hair loss on the head or unwanted hair growth -> hormonal condition, other hormonal problems: cysts in the ovaries, absence of the menstrual bleeding, etc., Long-term side effect: liver parenchyma – & gt; Liver fatty acid GammaGT at 498 … & nbsp; WITHOUT ALCOHOL! Lamotrigine: gastrointestinal problems, increase seizure frequency
