I am 22 years old with partial complex seizures, and they started when I was ten. I was having them almost everyday, a few times a day, and have been seizure free for a month since the day I started taking keppra! I was about to give up hope on medication since I have tried them all for many years without any luck- tegrotol, topomax, depakote, zonegran, trileptal, etc...and went through the weight gain, weight loss, anxiety, memory loss, and so on. so if you havent found one yet dont give up hope. and if you havent tried keppra you should deffinately ask! some things I have warn you about though are the side effects, of which I wasnt aware of until it was kind of too late. this medicine DOES cause depression, psychosis, attempted suicide, and deffinately anger and temper outbursts. I am on lexapro now to control these side effects and it has made all the difference. Its very relieving to know that i'm not really going crazy! so deffinately inform your family and loved ones.
