How do these three meds when combined make you FEEL?
Hi, my 3 year old daughter had her first seizure 6 months ago (grand mal) and has not shown much progress even with three meds twice a day. She was having 25-30 drop seizures a day for awhile when just on keppra. We added topimax next in conjunction with that. No improvement. Added depakote about a month ago in the mix for a total of 3.
I am close to taking all three meds myself just so I can KNOW how she must feel all day. I super worried that these meds are helping a little, but hurting her alot. Basically if she feels more drowsy, ill and sore than she's currently telling us then I want to quit the meds.
Has anyone here been in this situation and dropped all meds to start the ketogenic diet? Anyone recommend ketogenic? Do you continue meds with that diet or? We're about to go that route, found this board today and am excited to read and talk to people here.
