Juv myoclonic epilepsy
Hello. I have been diagnosed with juvinile myoclonic epilepsy since last 15 years. Previously i took sodium valproate 1000 mg, but the medication was changed to levetiracetam 500 mg in 2013. I have felt changes in my behavior, life style and psychology ever since i took levetiracetam. Positive side was that there were no attacks. But now its costing me too much. I have headaches, twichings, fuzzy head, i am forgetting a lot of things like my education, college and school life. I talk in my sleep. I am inclined to short temper and cry. I am also getting very lethargic, which is effecting my performance at work place. What shall I do? Do i need to consult neurologist again? Shall i consult a psychiatrist also?
