taking keppra and tramadol at the same time..
| Katelyn 17
I had a skull fracture and head trauma and the doctor put me on Keppra and tramadol.. I didn't realize it at first but I have changed since I have been on the medication, I have been having major mood swings and no appetite at all and every day after school I go into depression mode and its driving me crazy. im going to talk to my doctor soon about it but that is what has been bothering me the most about it but other then that the pills do a good job with pain and for some reason I sleep better when I take them but when I don't the pain is like going through hell.

Say what ? How do you think I got tramadol. DR wrote me a script. Now maybe he had no real exp with epilepsy. I was 6 yrs free of siezures until I was off my meds for awhile. Sure enough epilepsy is going to be around 4 ever. So taking tramadol is better than taking narcotics for pain relief. I will take my chances with medical supervision. Threshold this and that. Even before I took my siezures serious , I was lucky 1 @ year to1 1/2 off siezure free. Mine are clearly stress related also h

Keppra is a seizure med. It made my wife go through what you described. Her doc changed her to lamotragene (spelling is off on that). My concern is that tramadol is not supposed to be taken by people with epilepsy. Or anyone with a higher chance of seizures. It lowers the threshold for seizures. So if you have seizures and are still taking tramadol, please talk to your doctor asap..m its not safe.
