Re: Help!!! Keppra Problems***
I know all that about the VNS is true, but he dosen't really need it deactivated, as stated, it has been a 'mood' and 'weight' stabalizer and whatever seizures it MAY be helping with and all really makes it okay with him just to keep it on. I just feel bad about it because hes got unneeded plastic and stuff rolling around in his body, you know? He dosent really seem to mind that part, though.
Yeah, we totally fired that doc the second he proved combative over Jimmy's heightened seizure state with the Keppra. Now he's seeing a very nice epileptologist... supposedly the department head or something. Real good guy. He's now taking the Tegretol with Lamictal and Neurontin. Only slight improvements, but I think theyre trying to wean him off the Neurontin so they can switch it out and try new pills in its place, to see if that does any good.
Have you heard of any adverse reactions with Tegretol (XR's what Jimmys on, ill get the real numbers, my mom usually works with that though) and Keppra? I was talking to one of his dr's and they were like, "yeah, that reaction CAN occour when combining Tegretol and Keppra". Geez drs make me wanna scream.
Thanks for the love,
