My 21 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with epilepsy. She is taking keppra and gabapenten. She complains about being in constant pain. Is this part of the epilepsy?

Hi Sweetiepie & welcome to the forum. So sorry to read about your daughter's recent dx. This forum runs really slow. I know Gabapentin is often prescribed for pain. However, it takes awhile to become effective & also getting the proper dosage. I have heard of people having pain with seizures, but I think she should call her drs office & speak with the nurse. The nurse can talk to the dr & go from there. I did read at that the Keppra should be taken at the same time every day.

Take care.
