Hello again, CPM.
I don't recognize Keppra, but Lamictin is an excellent med for epilepsy, and that s what it was researched and introduced for. Only later was it found to be also useful in bipolar disorder, like other epilepsy meds ( it may sound odd, but in both conditions one needs to stabilize chemistry across membranes in the brain. ) So its actually logical.
We have a habit, doctors and patients, of naming meds after the first thing they're found useful for, and then being puzzled when we're told they can be used for other purposes. ADs are only called that because they were FIRST developed for Depression. But then we gradually found that their actual more precise chemical actions were also useful in other conditions.
Indeed, come to think of it, many drugs get discovered by accident when used for other purposes - a very early antidepressant was discovered when a drug developed to treat TB, was found to also produce more cheerful chaps with Tb. So it pays to be observant and thoughtful !
Sorry to hear about this latest disappointment. As CP involves early brain damage, brain damage can later cause irritable spots which can show themselves by various forms of epilepsy.
"Old" CS can't crawl into a cave and cement it up - can't get hold of a big enough cave or enough cement.
