hey, i am 14 years old and have had seizures for 3 years now. the first year i was put on kepra, that made me very moody and emotinal. it also didn't stop the seizures. they then switched me to depakote. that is what i am on now. Neither medications worked out too well for me. the depakote made me gain weight like crazy. Like almost 70 pounds. but it kept me less moody. My doctor wants to switch me to Topamax. She said it makes me lose weight, but my grades might slip because it messes up your thought. AHH! help! i dont know what to do. please give me your opinions.
