I think most people have had good luck with the Lamictal...be sure to go slow when starting it...my son was on Lamictal and it caused really bad headaches....we are winging him off now. One neuro wants to go to Zonegran but I see it causes weight loss just like Lamictal...so when we go to the newer neruo I hope she says NO!!
I'm taking lamictal, zonegran and dilantin now. When I first started the lamictal and zonegran I got a really bad headache. I was lowered a little then raised again and they went away. I think they raised it too fast. I feel better than I did on tegretol and dilantin that I was taking before. I couldn't see strait. I do get tired during the day sometimes but I drink a lot of coffee. I like it!.

Hi
I'm on Topamax (75mg AM) (200mg PM) and Lamictal (75mg AM) (100mg PM) for the first time in my life i've been seizure free. Topamax is a fantastic drug, i took part in the 'guinea pig' trials and have been on it ever since and i've been on Lamictal for 6 years, no problems with either. I agree you should definately come off Keppra (it took me into out of control rages)
