Re: Switching from Tegretol to Keppra
This is getting a little advanced in meds... Teg shortens the half life of Lamictal compared to if the patient is on Lamictal only, or on another med. Depakote also has an effect on the half life, making it longer in our systems. Like I said, it gets advanced when you start learning about your meds like that!! (grin)
There is a heads up IF and WHEN you are to start on Lamictal. Until then I'll leave it at that. Your pharmacy and Dr will tell you about it with the information you get with the pills.
