Hello fellow Epi's ..... I'm here seeking stories, experiences, and advice. When I was 16 I started getting myoclonic jerks. This brought me to the Doc, and I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I'm on 1000mg Depakote p/day & Tranxene too (take as needed). These have been kinda working for me, however, I'm turning 27 this month... After being on Tranxene for the past 10 years I've built up quite a tolerance. 1-2 used to do the trick (stop myoclonic sensations and generalized seizures) , now, I'm up to 8-10 a day!!! and suffering more than ever!
Recently, I had 3 seizures pretty close together... in fact, one was only yesterday. I'm also constantly tired and I have been suffering problems in keeping erections.
I've decided it's time for a change - I'm looking into Keppra , and I was wondering if you guy's could help me with any advice, stories, experiences, etc....
Thanks in advance!! - E.T.
