Can an anti-epileptic drug such as keppra (levetiracetam) prevent seizures that happen from taking tramadol?

Can an anti-epileptic drug such as keppra (levetiracetam) prevent seizures that happen from taking tramadol?

Perhaps.: In theory, the answer is yes. However, the vast majority of patients who do not already have a seizure disorder will never have seizures or seizure-like activity if they remain below 300mg/day of tramadol. If seizure-like activity is noted, the better choice is to eliminate tramadol, rather than minimize side effects with yet another medication. ...Read more

What was happening: During the status. Were you having tonic clonic movements or were you in a post ictal or other form of unconsciousness? Seizures can result from a number of medical illnesses. Temporal lobe seizures can be hard to find on an EEG but during a seizure there should be something.

Can a father's drug use during conception cause birth defects - for example cocaine, opioids, depressants, stimulants, LSD/Ecstacy?

Can a father's drug use during conception cause birth defects - for example cocaine, opioids, depressants, stimulants, LSD/Ecstacy?

Major drug abuse: A history of major drug abuse can cause damage to male reproductive health - but it would not be from a single use at the actual time of conception. I'd also think hard about the maturity and responsibility toward a potential child that you might expect from a man who abuses drugs enough to cause harm to his body. Creating a Life is serious business - even more than sex (which is too!) Be safe. ...Read more

Jeanne, 58 has epilepsy. Dilation & keppra (levetiracetam). Lost 60lbs meds adjusted seizures start again. Meds adjusted back seizures continue. (Levels fine) ideas?

Advice: Find a neurologist who specializes in epilepsy. You may need different medications, consideration for a VNS unit, search for an underlying co-morbidity, and updated MRI with ambulatory EEG studies. Some hospitals have inpatient monitoring centers, and this too may help. A Concierge visit could deal with this in part more thoroughly. ...Read more

What is the procedure for weaning off anti epileptic drugs, specifically keppra (levetiracetam)?

What is the procedure for weaning off anti epileptic drugs, specifically keppra (levetiracetam)?

With Your Doctor: Weaning off of Keppra (levetiracetam) will depend on the dosage and length of time on the medication. It would be tapered down, much the same as it is generally started. Because of complications, it should only be done under your doctor's supervision. It is not something to try on your own at home. ...Read more

Rfractory seizures in meningoencephalitis not responding to 4 anti convulsion drugs, like midazolam, levitricetum, eptoin and gardinal, what next?

Doubt meds will work: After 3 or 4 drugs, the chance of success is below 4-5% at best, and unless you have some metabolic imbalance, you should consider a more aggressive approach such as a vagal nerve stimulator or even a surgical procedure. Get evaluation at a local medical school and see what might be available for you. ...Read more

Does a seizure produced by sudden withdrawal of Dilantin prove epilepsy?

Why initial Rx?: I have to assume that you were put on Dilantin because of the concern for epilepsy. It would be appropriate to discuss this with your doctor. If you have bad effects from dilantin, there are many new medications that are as good and with much less side effects. It sounds that you need medication, but may benefit from a change. Discuss options with our doctor. ...Read more

Epilepsy monitoring unit, how to use this?

Seizures: You have to be referred to an EMU. This is the place where the neurologists study 'events'. Not everyone's events are seizures, therefore it's the perfect place to see if you are having seizures, and if so it helps to determine which type of seizure you have and which medicine would be best for you. ...Read more

Topamax (topiramate) addto Dilantin + med change then increased multiple seizures ER dr said Dilantin levels are toxic. Caused by topamax (topiramate)? When seizures stop?

Topamax (topiramate) addto Dilantin + med change then increased multiple seizures ER dr said Dilantin levels are toxic.  Caused by topamax (topiramate)?   When seizures stop?

Me no understand: Your statement sounds like Morse Code to me. Some of it I get but maybe you can restate it a bit more calmly. If Dilantin were added to Topamax (topiramate) then, yes toxic levels of Dilantin could occur. If other way around then, we'd expect levels of Topamax (topiramate) to decrease not Dilantin increase. Sounds like you need to check in with your neurologist for a "realignment" of some sort with your meds. ...Read more

Is ketamine a viable anti-depressant drug therapy?

Vfhjr.

Ketamine: Ketamine offers very interesting possibilities for depressed patients who don't respond to standard therapies. It does induce dissociation and sometimes hallucinations, but in some there's an antidepressant effect that lasts for several hours/days after those are gone. Some drawbacks: can be liver damage; it must be given IV in a controlled setting; effects may wear off. All is being studied. ...Read more
