Hooray! No more Tegretol!
I just wanted to share my excitement. After 2 months on Lamictal, it's working SO WELL. I only had 3 tiny seizures since I started it. So I finally had my follow-up appointment with my Neuro at Yale yesterday after my VEEG in July, and she made up a schedule for me to wean off the Tegretol. I'm so excited about this. I can't wait to be on only one med (If I'm still doing really well after coming off the Tegretol, she's going to have me wean off the Keppra, too). This is such great news to me, just because I've always been so nervous about being on so many meds, and how there are so many negative long-term effects of Tegretol. I also want to have kids someday, so it will be really great to be on a safer med by the time I'm ready.
