tkdryan Posted August 5, 2010 Share Posted August 5, 2010 QUOTE (Drumnut @ Jul 27 2010, 09:07 PM) One Little Victory! I had a Neuro appointment today, my Dr is finally taking me off of one of the drugs I take that I HATE! I told him that if he didn't switch me, I was just going to quit. (we've been fighting about this drug for years) The drug I've hated for years and finally was taken off of is Lamictal. I am currently taking Lamictal and Keppra and hate them both. He gave me a new script for the drug I like and a plan to slowly step down my dosage of Lamictal and titrate up to an effective dose of Dilantin. Dilantin worked well for me before and I was switched to Lamictal by an ER Dr, not a neurologist. Dilantin will be my main drug and my Keppra dosage will eventually be cut in half depending on how well I do on Dilantin. I still have a few more tests for possible surgery and and have appointments for them next week. My goal is to get my seizures under control, get off of disability and drive my ass back and forth to a job every day!!! No seizures today BTW!
