I’ve been on Keppra 1000 mg daily since 2018. No seizures! Other than epilepsy, my health is excellent.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member Ahhh that's interesting. I'm drinking alot more water these days so it will be interesting to see whether it has any effect in gaining weight. I'm generally better in the way I do things now then I was before I had my last TC.

Keppra Was The Worse For Me. I Was A Complete Zombie, Sleeping All Day & Night. Every Medication Doesn't Work For Everybody.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member Officially I only have to take B6 50mg but I take a B complex. It is meant to help with the behavioral side effects associated with Keppra.

Jack, why did you need to take the B vitamins? I have nerve pain after doubling my Keppra. I thought it was a b deficiency
