Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
you should get a scan of your brain
if your old medications were controlling your seizures better, you might need to go back on your old medications.
what were you on before keppra?
then that might be a better seizure medication for you.
Tegretol XR carbamazepine.
probably 600 or 800mg twice a day or something.
well, now it is worse,
once a week.
I would go back to the neurologist and ask to be changed back.
when is your next appointment with the neurologist?
I would work on trying to get a sooner appointment than that.
since you are having seizures every week.
you need to go back on your tegretol XR and get a scan of your brain and an EEG
get the EEG first
tell the neurologist you are having seizures weekly
ask first to go back on your tegretol.
if your seizures are still bad, then ask for a scan.
best of luck to you
try your best to get a sooner appointment.
I hope you get your seizures under better control
