No one likes Keppra.

Keppra. We do not like you. Edda is just like a little noodle when she's on this medication, a more unsteady walker - like a drunk college student, only shorter, wearing fuzzy cartoon print pajamas and not puking at 2 am on a dark street. She has been doing the most amazing acrobatics to keep herself on her feet, each time she looks like she's about to careen into something, she catches herself and re-rights herself without falling. I guess at least she's working out those ab muscles.

And, we haven't noticed any decrease in the occurrences of her seizures. So we are getting all of the side effects and none of the benefit. Grrrr...

Thanks :) I hope we'll just wean her off in a few weeks and she'll be back to her old self. Then we'll decide on the next step.
