I’ve had chronic migraine with aura for 10+ years now; migraine with aura for a little over 11. While I’ve been on too many medications to remember, a combination of topamax, botox injections, and verapamil have been holding me for about the last three. Until March 31, when I went into status migrainus. Nothing has helped. I have an appointment with a headache specialist on August 27, but in the meantime, a new neurologist that I saw this morning wants to titrate me off the topamax while titrating me on to keppra.
Being the person I am, I put on my sunglasses and did some research on keppra (perhaps the one thing I *haven’t* been on! lol), and what I’ve found re: keppra and migraine isn’t much nor encouraging, and the lawsuit didn’t help.
So. I’m coming to you, the knowledgeable people of migraine.com, to get the truth from the people who REALLY know – the people who live with the beast, day in and day out, just like me. Does keppra work or not? And if you’ve tried it, what were your experiences? Is it worth giving trying, or should I just wait for my headache specialist appointment, as my gut is telling me? So many questions…
Thanks everyone; hope you’re all having a beautiful day! 🙂
