Keppra to Topamax
Sep 17, 2007
... I wouldn't say that the Topamax effects are "kinder" than Keppra's...not from my experience. The time I was on Topamax was the worst time of my life. I'm so glad to be off it.

Your Dr would do "Teg Free Levels" to obtain a more accurate reading of the Teg if you were on both at the same time. Relating to this I had a couple odd encounters where my Teg level (standard level) spiked... (7 replies)
