I've had epilepsy for a little over 10 years and the medications I've been on and am still on is Lamictal 350mg twice a day and Keppra 1750mg twice a day. They are really really not controlling my seizures at all! It seems my seizures are getting worse. I'm only 26 and they just get worse and worse. So obviously for me Lamictal and Keppra are not working... On Monday I go to my neurologist for a check up and I want to talk to him about different medications. Any suggestions?

If your meds are not controlling the seizures, you should be discussing different meds. You should also be looking at all the factors in your life.
Could there be more or different stress in your life? Your diet can make a difference. Sleep. There are so many variables.

I know I don't go through this myself, but I have a daughter who started having seizures, we think as early as age 7. Hers are altered by hormones and stress. Her meds are not working but she is on the strongest dose of seizure medication that she can handle.
I carry and Epi-Pen for multiple food allergies.
