  • Gaye on Apr, 9, 2012:

    My daughter is still taking anti seizure meds after ner seizures have stopped after 95% removal of a glioma brain tumor last October. I thought my daughters tiredness was mainly from the uncontrollable seizures, but her fatigue has continued due to the meds (keppra). She can't do much at all. She has gone from an outdoor, sporty girl; to a child that crys from fatigue and has huge bags under her eyes. She doesn't want to do anything and crys if she has to walk or go anywhere. My daughters life is still put on hold because of her meds. I want my little girl back. It's been two years. I am so sad for her. I think of all the kids stuck on these meds. It's so unfair for them. Brain tumors, seizures and meds are a living nightmare!!!!!
