Aug 12, 2018 · Keppra in Epilepsy & Seizures

I continue to take Gabapentin. I had the auto immune NMDAR encephalitis after a HSV encephalitis. I went through a half dozen anti seizure medicines (being allergic to Lamictal/trileptal). My pain neurologist Dr. Sandroni (Minnesota clinic) had started me on Gabapentin to help me sleep at night & for nerve pain. After having to keep changing anti seizure meds at local ER visits my mother had found out the anti seizure capabilities of Gabapentin I have just been on that successfully since 2014. Technically I am non epileptic but because of the damaged regions I have to take anti seizure medicine. Also having tested non epileptic but having frequent terrible seizures, they were diagnosed as "behavioral spells". However, this was before it was known, even at Mayo Clinic I was suffering from active autoimmune encephalitis which had been active for 7 months before trying a trial IVIG protocol, which once started was the end of those shaking/seizure spells. I always bring up the autoimmune encephalitis because it presents and is diagnosed differently.
