I highly recommend contacting your insurance company to see if Mayo Clinic is in your network. I went through Mayo Clinic’s Epilepsy Center and I haven’t had a seizure since. They are fantastic. Before going through the seizure clinic, I was having seizures daily for several years tried dozens of different medications and always felt horrible. They admitted me to the seizure clinic and after 10days I was taken off all my old medications and started Trileptal which was the perfect drug for me! No crazy or weird side effects for me. But keep in mind ever patient is different what works for me may not work for you which is why their clinic is so perfect. They find what WORKS FOR YOU!

Time for second opinion.

My son started on keppra for focal seizures. He had bad side effects & could not get to recommend dose. Trileptal worked for him as well. We went to 2 level 4 epilepsy clinics ( Mayo being second opinion).
Good luck,

Thank you so much for this information. After verifying your insurance coverage, how did you get an appointment? I do not have them daily. Very infrequently. Only two three months apart. Original cause was a fall that caused a sub earl hematoma in my brain . That’s healed but the two doctors I have seen insist on continual Keppra to prevent them. I hate the side affects. I am just not myself and tired most of the time. I will call Mayo a# soon as I can after the holiday. Bless you!
