Hi Paulcannon12

I hope since your post you’re either feeling better or have talked to your doctor.

It’s difficult living with epilepsy. It’s such an unpredictable condition. Talking to others in a similar situation can help. So

I hope you hear from others in this community soon.

If you don’t, as well as managing the HealthUnlocked community, Epilepsy Action has other ways for you to contact others. These are:

Hi Paul, hope things have improved for you. Has your Doctor, or Specialist suggested any lifestyle changes?

There are so many different AEDs, it seems each of us reacts differently to them as well. My Keppra was increased (this was the one that made the most change for me), Clobazam was very effective at first, but it's wearing off with its usefulness.

Hope you find a good combination soon.
