Hi, I take Depekote 250mg three times a day.

Or I should say I am supposed to take them that often but I tend to always miss that middle of the day one. Have for many many years. And my dr says there is no big deal about it. My blood level is always ok.

I do have slight tremors as one of the side effects. But nothing that bothers me. Excpet when I get upset or emotional, then my hands will shake real bad. Makes me look like I am loseing it more then the situation calls for. lol

I take 2 Dilatin 100 milgram twice a day...but on Tuesdays and Saturdays I take 5 which is three in the morning and two at night..When I was started having the sezuires the dr put me on Depkote but I had a allergic reaction to it and I took something else and it did the same thing so I went on the dilatin and been fine the only side effects I have are I get dizzy really fast  and I get really tired too.

I have been very fortunate with my seizures.  They are completely controlled by Tegretol (knock on wood).  I take Tegretol 200 mg in the AM and 300 mg in PM.  I have taken it for so long that I don't know if the med makes me tired or not.  All I know is that I'm always tired!  I get slight tremors, but not all the time.  I think that's a side effect of Tegretol too.  Oh, and we can't forget, lots of Folic Acid!!!!  Smile

Hey everyone!  I take 300 mg of Trileptal each day and I'm going back to my neurologist Jan 31st to find out if I can switch to Lamictal.  I have read that Lamictal is safer for pregnancy & we're trying to plan for a pregnancy sometime next year, so hopefully goodbye Trileptal very soon.

I take 2000 mg of Keppra twice a day and 1/2 a tablet of Ativan at night.  I get tired too but I don't know if it is all the meds or being a mommy of a 11 month old baby boy! :p
