I just had my first epeleptic suizure 3 weeks ago & started keppra tablets morning & night & I also just found out im 7 weeks pregnant. Im sooooo deppresed last 2 weeks. Not allowed to drive for a year & pretty much lost my job.
Keppra seams to affect me pretty bad that I could so something worse.
I'm so sorry to hear what you are going through. I have been taking Keppra for 2 yrs myself. I don't recall feeling like that although I do remember being exhausted, along with other minor symptoms. I suggest calling your neurologists office & explaining what you are feeling. It may not be the Keppra, but the sudden loss of your job & your independence. It is good to talk to them as they may temporarily recommend an antidepressant. Mine prescribed them to me for post surgery depression and pain. I'm sure your neurologist will have an answer for you. Hang in there. You're stronger than you think. (((hugs)))
