Re: Seizure meds + kidney/liver function

My doc orders a CBC usually every six months as all of the meds. (including 3,000 mgs. of Keppra I gag down daily) can tax the kidneys/liver. Additionally, when I took 'girlie pills' (for endometriosis) my kidneys/liver weren't too happy and my enzymes were elevated. Even taking cold medication or anti-biotics can affect certain tests, so it's important you tell your nurse/doctor everything you're taking each visit!
