Zim

Question...

I am about to start that process of being weaned off of Keppra XR. I am waiting for insurance approval for the next medication, so it may be a week or more before the process actually begins, and I have never been weaned off of a seizure medication before. I have no idea what to expect, and am afraid of having seizures again.
To everyone who has been weaned off of this drug, I beg for your stories! I want to hear everything, just as a base idea of what might happen to me. (And also so I have a little something to explain to my boss as to what might occur)
I am still taking 900mg of Tegretol, so it may or may not be as intense as I am expecting. Either way, I'd like to be a little prepared.

Thanks in advance!
