I just noticed that Dec. 6th will be the one year anniversary of my husband's start on Keppra. He has not had any seizures since then. His last seizure was just before he started the Keppra. It has been quite a few years since he has gone that long without seizures. It has been a great feeling of relief for both of us.
im not that med im on a different one and its been 2 mos for me and im hoping the same for me .i had the drop seizures id fall anywhere anytime anyplace and so far so good iam not sure if im EP or not but i do have a seizure disorder im so happy for you and your husband i hope the same goes well for me too.did your husband have sleep trouble when he first started his like i mean did he fall asleep alot ? and if so how long did it take before that went away? im just wondering because the meds im on which is depakote xr 1000mgs a day and i get sleepy but it could be my sleep pattern as well but wanted to say im very happy for you both.
My husband dozes all the time, but at his age (84), it is no big deal. I think part of it is the meds, but not all. As long as he remains seizure free, that is all we can ask. I don't think that the Keppra has made him any more sleepy than before. His main early side effect was feeling cold all the time and he has lost some weight, but I don't know if that is the Keppra or not. His daily hiccups may be the Keppra and Dilantin, but we are not sure about that either.
