What Side Effects Should I Prepare Myself For With Keppra?

What Side Effects Should I Prepare Myself For With Keppra?

This morning my neurologist said she wanted to swap me from taking 400mg of Lamictal twice a day to taking 1000mg of Keppra twice a day. Can anyone tell me about their experiences with Keppra and should I prepare myself for any particular side effects?

It doesn’t matter what medication your on, these meds can give us memory issues. Although our seizures can also cause memory issues.

It’s different for some people cause I’m on the lamictal and I was on the keppra but honestly I think with me the keppra was giving me random mood swings and the lamictal makes me tired and dehydrated
