Hi, I am surprised that you feel you cannot take her to the hospital. I was on two medications at one point and then learned it wasn't necessary. I noticed alot of people are on more than one, maybe three or four. Side effects are going to be normal on any medications you take. Usually they go away after one or two months. But sometimes they wont, or they will decrease. I started with Keppra, now I take Topamax, and they side effects I was having aren't so bad. You have to let your body adjust to the medication. Most seizure meds cause depression and fatigue too. I would take any side effects over seizures any day. I would be careful with your daughter being home alone. Maybe she should stay downstairs to prevent her from falling down? epilepsy.com had a guide to keeping your house safe, look there for some good tips. I haven't really been in the same situation as you, but I hope that helps!
