Default keppra

I was diagnosed with petite maul (absent) seizures when I was 12. I was put on Dilantin with horrible side effects and anger. I refused to take it, and have lived with these absent seizures for more that 30 years. I recently took a medication for illness that kick my petite maul into a grand maul, which I had never had prior to this event. This started the whole EEG and doctor process again, which was never delt with before. I was put on 250mg of Keppra about 3 weeks ago, and my world has never been clearer. I so wish they would have found something like this 30 years ago. The only side effects I have notice is dehydration, water is a must have at all times. I get a little dizzy if I get up to fast, but that even seems to be subsiding. I hope for great things in my future. The grand maul seizure was a horrible thing to go thru but it has changed my life for the better. I could not be happier with my current situation. Life is Good!!!!
