    Olivia you are correct it is if you've had more than two. But again does not include those with traumatic head injuries.

  • Olivia Hughes

    From what I understand you'd look at the seizures as separate when using the term epilepsy. What I mean is, If you hit your head on a rock and had 3 seizures, you have ____ brain injury, and from that it caused you to have seizures, defined as epilepsy. I have a brain tumour, which cause me to have seizures, therefore making me an epileptic

    I was told it was 6 but that was years ago

  • Olivia Hughes

    Maybe it depends on the type? Lol

  • Jesse Camille

    I was diagnosed epileptic after only two Grande mals. Epilepsy isn't mental or physical's neurological. And it's not good to leave one alone after a seizure unless you know for sure that they are fully "back"...I had many where ppl would ask if I was ok n I'd nod but I still couldn't talk n would end up passing out

    I guess everybody is different. I've had no problems qith keppra. Other than sleepiness. My dr prescribed me keppra after a bad reaction to topomax. I suffer from tonic-clonic seizures after several ministrokes

  • Kate Battye

    I suffer from simple partial and complex partial seizures.

  • Elizabeth Andrews

    I've been taking keppra for awhile, the only thing I ever noticed which I'm fairly certain isnt from the keppra from the seizures thenselves is muscle weakness in my arms. I like Keppra, but was on Depakote before, which I liked better and even helped me grow out of the seizures once. The only thing with that is constant blood tests

  • Kate Battye

    Jeopardy nev been a problem for me. Tegretol made me really really tired - tired like a zombie - and made me put on loads of weight, which immediately came off when I stopped taking it. Now on 1500 Keppra twice a day and 125 Lamictal twice a day.
