I'm currently taking Keppra 500mg twice daily for epilepsy and am also on Lexapro 20mg at bedtime for depression. I am literally exhausted and unmotivated all day, every day. I'm so fatigued, I just want to sleep constantly. The Lexapro does not seem to be helping the depression issues. And being on the Keppra has only made me feel more tired and unmotivated.
My primary had put me on Wellbutrin which caused me to have a grand mal seizure (I have absence seizures typically). Now I have to be on Keppra to prevent another grand mal seizure so that I can get my driver's license back. Meanwhile, I'm off the Wellbutrin and have switched primary care physicians. My new primary care doc has me on a low dose of Lexapro.
I'm just so tired of being tired all of the time. My doc insists my bloodwork is normal. My neurologist insists the Keppra is the right drug. My husband's patience is wearing thin with seeing his wife sleep all of the time and sit on the couch all day long.
Has anyone else dealt with anti-depressant and anti-convulsant med therapy?
