I'd like to know how the Keppra is working out for you.
Melanie started having sz at 4 months and was put on phenobarb. She also developed head drops/myoclonic jerks a little later. She was put on Topamax (in addition), because the neuro and epi said that's a med that covers the myoclonic better. It worked great for us for almost 8 weeks, but we just added Keppra 2 days ago. She's been in the hospital for 4 days now because of some serious GTC's and high fever... and now rash that we're hoping is not a drug reaction. If she hadn't gotten this nasty virus that gave her these nasty fevers, we probably wouldn't be dealing with these sz right now, but since we are, the neruo says the Topamax isn't cutting it anymore. I'm sad about that, because we'd had such great control for so long-- although she had lost some "sparkle" with that med.
So, I'd like to know how the Keppra has worked out for you so far: I've been reading people's postings about their mood changes and rages, and wondering exactly how those side effects might present in an infant... well, I guess irratability, etc. But I also wanted to mention Topamax. It controlled her partials and myoclonics for quite a while... but now we've got these nasty GTC's...
