Keppra Might Not Be the Answer

Just less than a month ago I posted that Keppra might be working to control Evan's seizures after he went almost a week without a seizure. Now we're think the medication is failing to control the seizures. He's having seizures almost every day and also having more clusters of seizures. The clusters are usually 3-7 seizures about 15 min. apart, and he's having a cluster every 2-3 days or so.

We have been increasing the Keppra every week and can only increase it two more times before we max out on the amount Evan can have for his weight. I'm not typically a pessimistic person, but I'm not very hopeful that we're going to see a remarkable improvement on the medication in the next two weeks. Dr. Pearl talked about switching Evan to Lamictal if the Keppra doesn't work, so we may be trying that later this month.
