Is Sleeping More A Normal Thing When Taking Keppra At First?

Is Sleeping More A Normal Thing When Taking Keppra At First?

I used to take keppra, made me have anger issues bad. They had to lower my dose.

I don't think I have sleep apnea. I have not sleeping issues before I have the first seizure. I am considering a sleep mask because my hubby likes to watch tv in bed while I am trying to go to sleep. Also, if he goes to the bathroom during the night he will leave the bathroom light on and partly close the door. I do know light does make it hard for me to go to sleep and may wake me up.

I am doing okay. Still adjusting to the death of one of my cats and still look for a job. I am glad you had a good Valentine day. I did surprise my hubby by putting his valentine card in his lunch box and we have an awesome yummy dinner.

Maybe it is me but I still don't sleep all night. I get a few hours and then I am awake the rest of the morning.

I just started it a few days ago and I am sleepy/tired all the time so for me I would definitely say it is a side affect
