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
