I have no problems with Mary's post. If you study my most recent post, my objective was to try to empathiize with Mary by saying how badly I felt for what she is going through and how much I hope her granddaughter achieves some quality of life.
I was referred by one of your moderators, Ethan McConkley to join a more limited group about Keppra. Because there are so many stories about families dealing with epilepsy or their caregivers, I was attracted to Connect by those who focused on a narrow subject about Keppra. This does not mean that I am not interested in all posts.
If I am further criticized in the future, I will disconnect from Mayo Connect and the many who have liked my posts might be disappoined.

Try to find one of the Mayo Clinic counslers or moderator who decide on which messages go out and those that are not allowed. My experience is that some messages are moved to a different category than that which the writer believes was the one where they can get the most input, useful and helpful information.

I am sorry for what you are going through with your granddaughter. She deserves a normal and healthy life as the rest of us do who are posting on this site along with others who suffer from epilepsy and seizures.
My posts specifically relate along with others who are posting about the effectiveness and their experiences with the drug, Keppra.

Lethargic-Daily 3000 mg Levetricetam reply:

Besides Levetrcetam, I am also taking large doses of phenobarbital and significant doses daily of lamotrgine (lamictal).

There are other medicines I am taking for other unrelated conditions to my seizures so I cannot isolate how much the Levetricetam is helping me.

Oct 14, 2018 · Keppra in Epilepsy & Seizures

I have been suffering from seizures since 1995. Each episode can be as many as five that have left me unconscious. Fortunately, my wife has been present on each event and has taken care of me each time.
I have throughout these years been seen by four diffenent neurologists because of changes of locations where I have lived.
What drew me to this site was the discussion about Levetricetam (Keppra). I am taking 1500 mg twice a day or 3000 mg daily.
