keppra
I was wondering if anyone is using keppra and the side effects, or any knowledge of keppra would be usefull, as my doctor is adding keppra to my epilm medication.

Thanks for all your help....

My daughter has been on Keppra since Dec. 07. She takes it 2X a day and hasn't noticed it making her sleepy. The side effects have been very mild. Her teachers noticed a small change in her critical thinking and problem solving with math. She is still a straight A student and participates in all her sports. I hope this will be helpful.

Yes that has helped to put my mind at rest a bit, its just im concerened moving from one AED to another as i have been on tegretol for 20 years now but i guess starting next week we will see how it gos, i guess i just have to give it time, i just hope that keppra also does not make me put more weight on than i already have done with the tegretol.

Thanks again, and im glad your little boy is well...

I have been on Keppra for over 2 years and I haven't had any side effects.  It along with Limectal are controlling my seizures.

HI Debz123

Just joined this forum and saw you post.  My doc is also switching my tegretol to keppra and keeping the epilim, and am just wondering how you found it in terms of seizure control and side effects?  I think I can live with the side effects, as the epilim has left me with short memory loss and am always tired, but I'm really nervous switching meds as have had good seizure control (one in every 6 years for the last twenty).

Any info. would be great thanks!
