Keppra Side effects

Hi All.
My 17 year old son has been on Keppra (1000mg twice daily) for 2 years and Topamax (50mg twice daily) for 18 months. He has been seizure free for 18 months. The last couple of months he's been feeling very depressed, confused, anxious, coordination problems, concentration, And a couple of times a day he feels as he used to feel after he had a seizure. He's also lost about 65lbs (30kg) in the last 18 months. Has anyone else had issues like this while on these meds?
thanks for your help
Jackie.

I have had the same issues when I was on Keppra, but I was also maxed out on the dosage, and I was on I believe 3 other types of seizure meds at the time. I can't remember if I every was on Topamax or not, sorry. I would get another EEG to see if the seizures are starting to breakthrough. Early this year I started to have the same problems again, and had to be put on another drug.
