Hi, my newly diagnosed 9yr old son seems to have side effects with his meds and I need advice.
He is on Keppra 500mg 2x a day and Dakapote 125mg 2x a day. He is having a lot of anger issues and mood swings. He will be fine, playing with the dog, then bam...cussing and throwing things. We walk on eggshells so we don't upset him but that's no way to live. I need options. Does anyone have some advice?
Why do doctors tend to give more than one med at a time? Wouldn't it be better for the patient (and the mom!) ? I dont know, I'm just a little overwhelmed and this is all so new to us.
Typically what is Keppra pescribed for? The ER doc gave us keppra after his second seizure. This was before we knew what type of seizures he had. He has absence/ tonic-clonic seizures. im lost. thanks.
