Hi
I started to take Keppra and it made me very ill, tired, nauseous, lack of appetite but the worst was I started to have suicidal thoughts due to this medicine and I stopped taking it straight away. Not everyone has the same reaction, but you should be aware of what can happen.
I don't know any effects for the other two medicines you are taking.
I hope you find they help you.

I also take Keppra but have never had any problems at all. I suffered with depression for 11 years and came of the medicine fully just before I went on Keppra, and yes I have days where I do feel depressed but with any illness you do have days where you feel depressed even suicidal. So my advice is don't necessarily put it down to Keppra. Talk to the doctor who prescribed Keppra to you and see if you can be referred to a Psychiatrist to talk it through and find out if it is the tablets!
Hope this helps and stay focused.
