... Hi Andy, and welcome! Sorry, I'm not familiar w/Epilem, but I sure have experience with some of the seizure triggers you mentioned. Sleep deprivation is my numero uno trigger.

Teenage moodswings
Apr 28, 2006
... hassles at this age must be hard, so moodswings are bound to be expected. But you're right to be suspicious of the meds. I don't know much about Teg but being on Epilem was really difficult for me. ... (6 replies)

... Hi Rinoa I can't say I've had chronic fatigue, it was perhaps appoaching that whilst on Epilem - I only made it to about 60% of uni lectures on when Epilem as compared with a generally perfect attendance rate (and my house was 5 mins walk from the lecture halls), but don't think this classes as chronic as I did make some. I've always had concentration problems on... (8 replies)

... Hey Elicia... I'm on Topamax 250mg per day, with Lamictal 400mg and I've just introduced Keppra, now at 500mg per day. I start to gradually take away the Topamax on Thursday because it wasn't stopping my fits. On a low dosage combined with Epilem and Lamictal, I was in love with Topamax - but I couldnt stay on Epilem, and a three drug combo wasn't what I was looking for. I... (2 replies)
What next??

... Hey Stafford… From what I’ve read you’re son’s story is similar to my own – I was diagnosed at age 17 and I have myoclonics, grand mals and absence seizures. It sounds as though he’s been diagnosed with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy? Although “juvenile” makes it sound as though it might go away it just refers to the age that the epilepsy set in I’m afraid (usually before age... (3 replies)
... D Hooray! The only time I've experienced insomnia is when I took Epilem with Lamictal. It stopped when I came off Epilem. The hyperactivity thing with Lamictal didn't affect me, but my metabolism shot up with Topamax. ... (24 replies)

... Hi all hope your all not so bad today I'm posting this thread as I'm curious to see what epilepsy sufferers think of sodium valporate? I've been on various doses for around 6 years and at the beginning I got headaches whilst it was getting into my system,and don't get me wrong my seizures are not as severe as they used to be however the headaches are becoming more of a...

... I had my first fit in November 2006, the fit was provoked by a brain tumour that was subsequently diagnosed in June 2007 after a MRI scan. The brain tumour was removed in July 2007. After the operation I unfortunately had another fit as a result of a cist that formed three days after the operation where the tumor had been. The cist was treated and I was put onto anti...

... What is Epilem? (4 replies)
... WOW - 1000mg of Keppra straight away?!? I'd re-think that. It comes in 250mg and 500mg tablets too, I'm used to big doses of different meds and my meds changing a lot, and my neuro told me to go slow adding Keppra in - I was on 250mg daily for a week, then 250mg twice daily for a week etc, now on 1500mg twice daily. At first I had hyper episodes 'hyper half hours' - which were... (16 replies)

... In the US we call Epilim (sp?) "Depakote" for the rest of the readers... --Travis I was on it with other meds... it sort of worked for me.
