I of course am going to make the final decision with my doctor, but I had about 10 seizures (all but the first one were during sleep) within 3 years, from 2008-11. My first neurologist started me on Keppra in 2009, but I kept having them so he bumped me up to Lamictal. I have been taking 250mg Lamictal twice daily since 2011, which is when the seizures stopped. i haven't had a seizure in over 4 years on Lamictal. My doctor says that usually 2 years after the last seizure it's ok to stop, so he wants to start me on a schedule to taper off the Lamictal over 3 months, but it's my decision to make. what do you think? Will taking it for years more do any damage to my body?
