Vmpat is an additional med. I also take Keppra XR 1000mg. I feel that it works well, but I have experienced tremors with it and my appetite has been suppressed. I do not eat at all, I have to force myself to eat, and I have constant nausea. I have bad nightmares and hallucinations mostly in the evening.
