Are There Similarities Between Side Effects Of Keppra And Fycompa?

Are There Similarities Between Side Effects Of Keppra And Fycompa?

My son was just prescribed fycompa but years ago he was prescribed keppra and had an extreme personality change, becoming nasty and aggressive. That however, was when he was in pediatric care so his current doctor would not know this but is warning of mood swings as a possible side effect for the fycompa. Does he therefore have more chance of experiencing this side effect with the fycompa?
