Question Uncontrollable appetite - eating till I might explode

I've been on tegretol 400mg for a month now and it has made my appetite literally uncontrollable. It is insatiable. I have never experienced anything like this in my entire life.

I was diagnosed 1 month ago with temporal lobe epilepsy and was told one hippocampus was smaller than the other. I am currently in the process of switching to Keppra 1000mg as I slowly come off Tegretol.

Has anyone experienced this?

I hope to God Keppra fixes this. I would rather no appetite at all than this inability to be satisfied. It's running my life at the moment. It may sound silly but I really cannot describe the way my brain is making me react, it's absolutely horrible. Also I particularly crave cereal. I mean I would overeat on anything if it were there but cereal is what my brain mainly screams for - breakfast lunch and dinner.

Any experiences with Tegretol, Keppra and hunger?
