I'm on Keppra 2625/day; TegXR 1200/day, and Topa 400/day. However remember, EVERY PATIENTS regiment is different. It's not apples to apples.

I've been through the selection of medications in the process. They tried Depakote, Dilantin, Lamictal, Zonegran, Phenobarbital generics. Pretty much the whole gambit of meds over the years. Bad combinations of them, as many as 4 at a time (not fun).

I still have seizures about every 3-4 months it has been. Hopefully I can extend that time line longer.

I think what helped me was I grew UP having seizures, so it was normal to me. I didn't know anything different. Having things strike later in life tends to put people in a tailspin. All of a sudden your entire bubble (world) is now different. It causes more stress on people that they often need to deal with.
I had enough stress and emotional bottle-up in my childhood years in relation to school environment I had to learn to deal with back then.
