Re: have you switched from Dilantin to Keppra. is so why did you
Thanks Travis, boy, you have had a heck of a ride!! I have not been aware of having seizures.
Someone was on the dock last summer when I was ill and commented it looked like one? This was a security dude, not a medical person.
So when I got to the hospital, my PCP ordered an EEG and a MRI. This showed 2 small, slow growing, benign tumors--starts with meng-----. They chose to do two surgeries because of the locations.
Was given Dilantian after, has been tough, lose of memory, anxiety, paranoia, shaky, and more.
Was suggested at one time that I switch to Keppra and see if it was more gentle. Then was suggested last week that I switch since it reacts less with the Coumadin?
But as stated above, since I have had no activity it looks like I can start tapering off the Dilantin. Not sure about the rate of cutting back but I really trust this guy and his PA is excellent. Will check in when I know?
It is such a relief as I am pretty sure it would be difficut to work while taking it. And, I am so ready for work. With surgeries and a few other things, has been over a year.
Now we are strugling to get Coumadin levels good, seems to be working.
Thanks for the reply, Take Care,
