went on vacation and had the same thing. hot weather can cause certain seizure meds not to work and can also just cause seizures. i cant be out in the heat for more then 2 hours and i have to wear sunglasses all the time even when the sun starts to go down. sunlight triggers my seizures as well. also flying on a plane can cause seizures. i asked my neuro before i went on vacation about all this and he said i was fine. i changed doctors. i felt my neuro should have known all this and he did not tell me what to worry about. he felt my pharmacist should have told me that my keppra would be reduced by sunlight.View Thread
