anyone taking keppra

my neuro started me on 1000mg of keppra combined with 400mg dilantin. i am having problems with my stomache,left ear stopping up and the sleepyness. how well has keppra worked controling your seizures and what side effects do you have? has the keppra helped your mood and stress level? has the keppra helped you lose weight and how long did it take you to get use to the med? thanks for all your help .

I've taken Keppra for a while and not had problems with it. I take 250 mg twice a day though.

hi Brainpain, I have been on KeppraXr for over a yr now, and I can definitly say I has controlled 100% of my szs, except and always tired, and I have gained 25 pounds even though, on most days I eat bare min. in calories..
I think it messes with my synthroid.. cuz the doctor keeps lowering my synthroid

thanks for sharing! i am still having problems with the dizzyness and staying tired and sleepy. my stomache hurts for a couple hours after i take it. the stopped up ear has stopped now. im not as stressed but do feel blue. i have also starting to eat less . i was told by my neuro it would help lose the weight after i get off dilantin. kixnggls i read you have hypo does keppra mess with thyroid labs? i had a pituitary tumor and was told dilantin will mess with labs. im hoping to get off dilantin completly in a couple months. i take 500mg keppra and 200mg dilantin morning and nightthanks ladys for your help,bp
