I don't agree with all of these statements. But everyone's seizures are different
Epilepsy... Tres has severe epilepsy and this is important to know for others who are not familiar with seizures
Great Info! Everyone should know this! They need to add more info on Partials, it's not as easy when you can't tell the person is seizing! :/

Olivia you are correct it is if you've had more than two. But again does not include those with traumatic head injuries.
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
Maybe it depends on the type? Lol
I was diagnosed epileptic after only two Grande mals. Epilepsy isn't mental or physical actually...it'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

#epilepsy started keppra this week, eating is ick and I'm too weak with my other stuff it's getting hard to sleep. Anybody know how to help? I think I'm starting to see stuff.. Aha well yeah
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
I suffer from simple partial and complex partial seizures.
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
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.
I took keppra still had seizures on I so changed it now it works kinda well I pass out but don't have a seizure so yeah lol
