My Brain, update

I’ve been on my new meds – Keppra – for twelve days now at 250 mg twice a day on top of 200 mg of tegretol retard twice daily.

This is the first night I’ve not slumped unconscious at about 7:30 once I’ve got home. In fact, somewhat the opposite: Mrs P has become slightly concerned that I have become slightly manic!

She thinks that I’m perky, dilated pupils and restlessness moving from one activity to another… Not necessarily finishing the first task or tasks before moving on elsewhere!
