Post I'm new. =o)

hi. I'm new to the boards... old to seizures!

I'm a 21 year old college student that has seizures resulting from traumatic brain injury.

I'm currently on Dilantin but will be switching to Lamictal. I've also been on Depakote and Kolonopin for seizures.

It appears that I have Assence seizures, Partial seizures, and possably myoclonic and atonic and also 2 GM seizures a year ago.

i guess thats all.

Hi I'm new here too!!
I will try to make this short and sweet but do have lots to tell...
I am a 36 y/o mother of 5
who has just been diagnosed with partail complex seizures after 11 years of no diagnosis.
I started Trileptal in June and now started Keppra in early Feb. I am still not seizure free and am not dealing with this whole thing too well.
I am unable to drive and also have been feeling dizzy and drowsy since started meds.
Any help or advice that you have would be greatly appreciated and please bear with me as I am new to this whole thing
Thanks
Janine
