Hello @kennethracey and welcome to Connect,

While I do not have any experience with seizures or the meds that you have mentioned, we do have a number of members with seizure disorders. I'd like to invite @jakedduck1 to this discussion.

On Connect, we also have a discussion on how to effectively use an appointment with a new specialist. You might find some of these suggestions helpful before you see the new neurologist on March 10. Here is the link to that discussion,

You mentioned that you are having seizures, "while sleeping with a CPAC machine." Is the CPAP machine new to you? Did you have seizures prior to using the CPAP?

Thank you. Teresa.
Yes the CPAP machine is new to me and I’m trying to get use to it. The doctor subscribed Keppra 500 milligrams in morning and 500 milligrams at night. For my seizures. I missed a dosage 1 evening and had 3 seizures. Didn’t know how important staying on this medication religiously was.
