I have had epilepsy for 20 years. I wasn't diagnosed until 2002 tho. I have simple/complex sz's. I have taken Dilantin, Lamictal, Zonagran and now am on Keppra. Nothing has changed. Is there any reason for me to continue meds?
SP's and CP's

Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right coctail of meds to control the seizures.

Twenty years though ~ that's pretty alarming - does your neurologist know what you're going through?    Have you tried different neurologists for another opinion or a "Epileptologist"? (they specialize in seizure disorders ONLY whereas a Neurologist specializes in ALL neurological disorders). Don't quit the meds without contacting your Neurologist or PCP.


Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.
