For four years now I have been on Keppra and Lamictal both slowly increased to… Keppra 1250mg morning and evening, Lamictal 250 morning and evening. My belief is that the side effects of these have contributed to the end of my marriage, many reasons were given for the failure without telling I was changing (shame as married couples should talk), so here are some of the reasons…

  • Agitation or restless
  • Problems sleeping
  • Panic attacks
  • Aggression, anger or violence
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Personality change
  • suicidal thoughts

Looking back now I see I had experienced all of them which was hurting her however, it should have been talked about so I could get help, change tablets, seek counselling or something.

So some advice for all of you out there, if you think you may be experiencing these side effects speak to your partner and see if they have noticed a change in you before it’s too late like my failure to notice, speak to your doctor or specialist nurse. After speaking to numerous people about this drug they say it’s evil and shouldn’t be used and I now agree. No doubt surgery has some blame too.

I would point out that I never physically hurt anyone but I guess emotions are stronger than physical pain.
