Good morning ma'am. Sounds like you've thought this through and I agree with your desire to change based on the side effects which I don't think you should necessarily have to live with for the rest of your life if you've reached your limit. Of course, your risk in the switchover is that you may lose control of your seizures a bit before you are fully ramped up on the Keppra
. I suggest that you consult with your neurologist
and allow them to specify the dovetailing process between weaning down on VPA and ramping up Keppra. I do that sort of thing all the time so it's not technically difficult but sometimes logistics don't make it easy.
All the best.
