Hi Everyone, I’ve Got A Question About Memory Loss

Hi Everyone, I’ve Got A Question About Memory Loss

I know seizures can impact memory loss. But I’m on Levetiracetam Keppra and I’m wondering if anyone else feels like this medication has impacted their day to day memory? I feel like I might have short term memory loss. I might just be over thinking it but I thought I’d ask on here incase anyone can relate?

All the best x

Im not sure about the process of… read more
