Update on my daughter

I wrote a week or two ago about the side effects my daughter was having with her seizure meds. The first med was Keppra, for those of you who are interested in such things. It took care of the seizures but did terrible things for her mood, which in a 12 year old girl can be up and down anyway. We had some really rotten days, whih prompted the doctor to switch her to Trileptal. I am delighted to report that seems to be working much better. No seizures, and she is back to being mostly even-keeled. We are all much relieved. Thanks to all of you who’ve been thinking of us!

  1. Good to hear things are smoothing out. It’s never easy, especially when they can’t really help it…

    HUGS!

  2. Praise God – that is some really great news!

  3. Great news and thanks for the update, I’ve been thinking about you all. My goddaughter had great success w/ trileptal, so maybe this will stay a good fit! God is good, all the time!

  4. Glad to hear things are better!!

  5. That is wonderful news! I’m not sure why the docs always want to start with keppra. It seems to turn the sweetest kids into savages. (Ok, I suppose it does work for some people.) Our experience wasn’t a good one either.

  6. Oh, I am so glad to hear. I was getting ready to email you about her!
