Keppra, pregnancy and ADHD

I had brain surgery in 2001, and still have epilepsy or "seizure activity" afterwards. My doctor put me on Keppra in 2002 because of it. In 2004, I told my doctor I wanted to start my family. I lowered my dosage to 250 mg 2X a day, from 500mg 2X a day, from 2004 to 2009. All things were fine. Got a new doc. She raised it back up. This is after 2 kids. Now hubby and I want a 3rd. Both kids have been diagnosed with ADHD though. Has anyone else ever linked Keppra to ADHD?? My new neuro doc is talking about raising my dosage of keppra, and taking me off of my other medication that I am on, because it was helping with my headaches. I know that one causes birth defects. I dont want to be on that one while pregnant. I know keppra is safe during PG, but Im just trying to figure out if there is a link between the ADHD and Keppra.
