Have you researched Johnsons syndrome? A seriously bad skin reaction to certain drugs that can litteraly make your skin fall off. It's rae but I know one particular medicatin my psych was going to put me on he said lterally 1 in 6 get the disorder, especially if you have known allergies (cats dogs, mold, hayfever) which I am a definite canidate so he didn't even try the drug. Obviously one of the many things I see him for is ancxiety, not the thing you want to hear when you have anxiety as bad as I do, the thought that he was even contemplating it with me, made me look twicew at his license and really realized he is basically still trying to diagnose or fingd something that works. Been on Keppra for a week and a half now 500mg, supposed to start taking it in the day too this week. So far feel really happy, no aggression or depresion, have made a lot of life changing decisions (to improve life) over the last 2 months, so don't know if it's me making good choices that don't aggraevate the depression, or the med or both? Can anyone else tell me of your mood the first week or 2 on keppra?
