For my regular readers, you already know that Avagrace has been going through another medicine switch. To date this is the first medicine switch that has not had major adverse affects! PRAISE GOD! She is improving and is not regressing quite as much! She is more like her typical self than ever before!
She has gone to 25 mg of Zonisamide and 5 mg of Melatonin at night and 750 MG of Keppra XR with a B6 in the morning. in 2 weeks she will be on just the Keppra XR.
I am very optimistic about the single medication plan with Keppra XR. She has never been able to be seizure free with just one medication, however, Keppra XR is an extended release so that means it will maintain it's levels in her bloodstream longer.
Please keep this switch in your prayers. It is always best to be on the least amount of medications. This means fewer side effects and a healthier brain. With the Gluten and Dairy (almost 100%) free we have seen significant improvements as well! Now if only we could find an athletic program that will allow her to join and that the doctors will approve of! Come on Dance!!
