It has been 42 hours since I missed my nightly dose of 4 Keppra and 1 Vimpat. These are the two medicines that have been doing a great job of helping me control my epilepsy. I spent 24 hours without taking Vimpat and 42 without Keppra. Nothing happened during the day I spent without Keppra or without my nightly dose of Vimpat. I don’t know if this means anything, maybe I was just lucky nothing happened. I don’t know, but it won’t happen again.
I really thought that if I was just a few hours late in taking them, I would have a seizure, but nope, I was wrong. I was able to prove that my small theory was wrong, without trying and without instructions from my neurologist. My question was, what will happen if I didn’t take the medicines at the time I’m supposed to? I thought I was taking a big risk just taking my medicine 30 minutes or an hour later.
I didn’t mean to do this experiment right now, but it just happened and it was a success. I know I don’t have to be so nervous about taking it a few minutes later. I am still 9 months seizure free!
I think I should tell my neurologist…
