Thanks for your responses. I had been away for a couple of weeks and was not able to “catch up”. Anyway, I have not yet switched to Keppra because I threw out my back and got put on muscle relaxants and pain meds and it was decided that it would be difficult to determine which side effects came from which drug(s). Fine with me. Tomorrow I have my six month MRI, then see the Neurosurgeon for results. Perhaps once that is all taken care of, I will give the Keppra a try. A friend of mine says just take the Boniva (or whatever you take for osteoporosis) and stick with Depakote. At least I know it works for me and I know the side effects and I have a pleasant disposition while taking it. Maybe she has a point.
