This is my first discussion--ever. So, here goes. I finally found a doctor that actually cares. It seems like it took forever--ten years to be exact. He diagnosed me with having complex partial seizures.I have been on depakote for about ten years. Then, I ended up in the hopsital for having seizures. So, we talked about taking me off that and putting me on Topamax. That literally made me sick and I was still having seizures. So, I talked to him about changing it to something with not so many side effects. I have been on Keppra for about four weeks now. I am still having seizures and I went in today and he upped my dosage. 1000mg twice a day. Plus 10mg of Lexapro once a day (Well, I have been on that since he put me on Topamax). Now, he wants to send me to an epilepsy monitoring clinic. What the heck is that? What do they do? How long does it last? He says it is to see what I do while having a seizure. I have already been through tons of EEGs and a catscan. It seems so tiring trying to figure everything out sometimes. Out of all the doctors I have had, he is the only one to switch my meds, try a catscan, and attempt an epileptic monitoring clinic. Is this a good thing? Bad thing? It really stresses me out trying to keep up with all this. Anybody have any suggestions???
