I did not write that post but it inspired me to try Keppra. I started out just a few days ago. Right now I'm on 250mg morning and evening which will be increased to 500mg morning and evening after 2 weeks.
All I can say right now is that I'm feeling really tired and a bit weird (more than usual) from the medicine. However I know that medicine like this takes a few weeks to get used to and I will try it out for at least a total om 1 month if I don't get any other serious side effects. I also heard that the drowsiness is suppose to be reduced after taking it for a while.
Had Hppd for 1.5 year now and it just got worse after traveling abroad for 2 weeks, which was why I called my neurologist and asked him to prescribe this for me. Feels kind of shitty when things practically reset after 1.5 years of trying to get better huh?
I can update here on how it all went in a couple of months.
It's been nearly a year since I got hppd, and man was this year hard. Constantly feeling this sense of not knowing who I am and what's gonna happen. Honestly, i'm not vary happy considering the fact i kinda retracted my social presence in my life. Because of this i'm constantly ridiculed by my family for being weird. "Why don't you ever leave the house? Are you depressed?" Idk how to feel towards the people who are supposed to be there for me, especially my mom. I opened up to her about how i was feeling, and she completely disregarded what i said, saying I have no reason to be sad. Which really pissed me off because i can't tell her, "hey i did a fuck ton of drugs last year and now i feel constantly disassociated and i can't open my eyes without seeing the most fucked shit." So that's how i'm doing, in spite of her doings, i've picked up making music. If you're interested in listen, i'll leave a link in my profile.
Much love guys,
