Generic Keppra Article

Generic Keppra Article

I just read this article on generic keppra causing seizures: https://epilepsytalk.com/2010/07/17/keppra-generic-seizure-drug-contributing-to-more-seizures-side-effects-and-death/ Has anyone experienced this and if so, did taking the non-generic form fix the issue?
