I was taking carbitrol 2 times a day. No, I was not told to wean off. I took my last one on a Mon. a.m. (10/24) and was without seizure meds until Fri. evening (10/28). I had several seizures on that Sat. and one on Sun. Since then I have not had any. What kind of repurcussions can stopping an anti-seizure med suddenly--an increase in seizure activity obviously--are there other problems?
I am now taking Keppra 500mg twice a day. I think it makes me dizzy. But I also had hand and wrist surgery last Tues. so I think that has thrown me for a loop, too, since I wasn't in top condition to begin with.
I'm thinking the elevated enzymes are due to the carb, but with the other auto-immune issues I just got to wondering.
