I just started having grand mal seizures in June of this year. It is due to a stroke a had in 2010. I am 53. Anyway I was first on Zonegran and it seemed ok. But I had a bad seizure about 3 weeks ago and started on Keppra. I am on 500 mg twice a day and 100 mg Zonegran twice a day and haven't had a seizure again since.
But my hair is falling out. I have always had a good head of hair and my family too. But since this Keppra, I took a shower the other day and way freaked out at all of the hair that was in the shower. It has never happened to me before and this was sudden. Has anyone had any problems with losing hair with Keppra? I have had hard 2 years with a stroke, then colon cancer (is ok) and epilepsy now. I don't want to lose my hair too
I have taken pretty good things in stride, considering. But I've always had a good head of hair. I hate to see that go too. Any help or insight on this Keppra I would appreciate. As you know, the docs, don't have a lot of compassionate on the emotion department.
