did anyone notice weight loss after being diagnosed or when your seizures were in the beginning stages because I've been in treatment for seizures for about 8 months and have gone from 230-184 and have been sort of maintaining but still loosing more weight in the end? or is it just a me thing?

      @rainbowofanxiety when I first went to the hospital they put me on Keppra and while I was on Keppra was when I lost the most weight now I'm on vimpat and xcopri and my appetite is still barely there I use cannabis which helps with my seizures and appetite a little bit.

      Yeah, Keppra made me drop the weight incredibly fast. I'm still on it, so I'm barely gaining weight. Vimpat—I'm allergic to so I can't really give advice on that. But, the weight loss with Keppra is very common.

        @rainbowofanxiety good to know because while I was on it I tried looking it up and all the articles I read only talked about weight gain..and Vimpat isn't working for me well so my neurologist has me in the process of weening off.

      Absolutely. I went from 130 to 95 really fast. Are you on medication?
