Sister tablet of Keppra
Hi I have an appointment with my neuro doc next week and he's talking about putting me on a new tablet that is the sister tablet of Keppra has anyone heard of this and has it any side effects thanks
Briviact! I have been on it for two years! If you have been having the side effects of Keppra - keppra rage - like I used to have - then switch! Since I have been on it, things have been much better. I'm not as tense as I used to be. The worst side effect I seem to be having is being dopey - a thick head and a bit slow. But not wanting to blow up and being angry like I used to under Keppra. Keppra rage is gone. I am able to control myself a lot easier now than I used to under Keppra! Doesn't mean that I am perfect! But when under Keppra, I was not in control! I am defenitely better. I'd much rather be tired than have rage! My experience!
I have only been on Briviact for four months, knowing the side effects of Keppra having been on it before, I decided to use only 50 mg of Briviact, I have had JME for 48 years and so been 'through the system' my request was passed by my specialists, I have side effects of feeling tired but not dopey, my intelligence has become 'sharper' and memory improved, however the 'black clouds of suicidal thoughts' has raised it's nasty symptoms but only slightly, this might be a left-over effects from my previous medication Fycompa, as I am still recovering from some of it's other effects, so am prepared to carefully put up with that? I am overall very encouraged about Briviact!
Hi Adlon57 for your reply I decided when I went to see the consultant yesterday I just could not try another depressive medication so we decided on friusm for 6 days of the month when my epilepsy is at my three days during ovulation and two days of period so we'll see were thisgoes. I hope you get positive result with Briviact.
