Depakote, Tegratol, and Keppra

After the failure of Lamictol, we began trying other anti-epilepsy medications….remember, my neurologist said I that I didn’t have epilepsy, but couldn’t come up with an alternative diagnosis.

I don’t remember the exact order of these three, but they did overlap, and it was nasty.

My knees got weak, I fell asleep in classes, I was angry (though still controlled, didn’t quite have the full Keppra Rage).

I started using a cane just to keep myself off the ground.

After a few years of these, and one or two others I can’t recall by name, I gave up on pharmaceuticals as a treatment for my seizures sometime between 2006 and 2009, I don’t remember when exactly. I started feeling much better once I was off the pills.
