Prolonged phenobarbital usage and connection with dementia?
So I’ve been on phenobarbital for nearly 30 yrs grand mals are controlled a few years ago I do have auras, lately I have had a ton of balance focus and memory issues neurology says the phenobarbital causes dementia in older folks and most likely this is my issue. Anyone know anything of this? They recommend I switch meds to keppra but I’ve heard a lot of horror stories on it, better ones? I’ve been seizure free more than 20 years and don’t want to do it again but it’s better than dementia for me!
