Patients requiring oral corticosteroids should be weaned slowly from systemic corticosteroid use after transferring to Advair Diskus. Prednisone reduction can be accomplished by reducing the daily prednisone dose by mg on a weekly basis during therapy with Advair Diskus. Lung function (mean forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FEV 1 ] or morning peak expiratory flow [AM PEF]), beta-agonist use, and asthma symptoms should be carefully monitored during withdrawal of oral corticosteroids. In addition, patients should be observed for signs and symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, such as fatigue, lassitude, weakness, nausea and vomiting, and hypotension.
I started out on 750mg of Keppra. After spending 3 days in the hospital after a wreck from having a seizure and blacking out my doctor raised the dosage to 1000mg twice daily. The seizures still continue and I take my medicine on schedule daily. Now my doctor has added 100mg Neurontin, 2 pills every 8 hours. I've had 1 seizure since starting this medicine. It was very mild, not as intense as some have been. I've only been taking these new ones along with the Keppra for almost 2 months now. I haven't had any side effects from the new medicine either.
