Hi i’m kendra and I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 15 years old. I’m 20 now and I guess I downloaded this app is to find people who have gone through similar issues I have since finding out I have epilepsy.

        @signature_sauce Do you know what type of epilepsy you have?

          @kennys25 how are you doing with it now and do you have any issues with your meds?

    • kennys25

      Have you thought about switching meds to see if it works?

      Keppra does the same thing to me but when i tried switching i had a seizure on the trial meds they put me on so I switched back. It is really frustrating not always being able to remember things or forgetting things that i’ve just discussed with someone, but it works so I just kind of deal with it haha. Plus i’ve been too scared to try & switch again just because I might have a seizure.

      Keppra has been helping, but its also been severely affecting my short term memory and focus. I don't know why I was taken off meds because I was too young to really remember

      I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 4, and my seizures have recently started flaring up again

        @LunaLover How long were they under control before they started flaring up again?

        • LunaLover

          @kennys25 honestly, they kind of just randomly stopped with no meds. It was kind of weird. Then last year they flared up again about ten days after I got my second covid shot and after that I was put on Keppra
