I take 100mg/day of this med in addition to Keppra(2000mg). I started about 4 weeks ago. My dr originally had me to increase up to 200mg/day, but it made me very lightheaded, constipated and fatigue. I decreased back down to 100mg/day and it has actually decreased my partial seizures by 50%. I also noticed that I'm not as irritable as I was when on Keppra alone. So far I like the interaction.

Comment:
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.

Comment:
Vimpat is an add-on to my Lamictal regime. I see no difference in coverage to Lyrica, but I have found benefits: my long-term memory has improved and I feel more alert. For dizziness, I recommend taking on a full stomach (after a meal)and take 12 hours apart. I haven't decided if I will continue with Vimpat or return to Lyrica. Note to englishbonnet: shame on your husband. ALWAYS take your ... Show Full Comment
