I've been tapering from Oxycontin for the past 6 months and got down from over 400mg daily to 150mg daily. Its been tough but I am getting there. I have been having seizures though for the past 12 months. I have put it down to the withdrawal but the neurologist says that the oxycontin may be a trigger but is not the cause of the seizures. I am really reluctant to keep taking the Keppra medication he has put me on as it makes me so so tired. Plus I am trying to get my body back to some sort of normality without drugs. Has anyone else had issues like this? My GP has also put me on anti depressants to help me taper my Oxycontin down further, has anyone found this helps? I have a chronic pain condition so need some sort of pain relief but do not want it in the form of opiates any longer.
