Re: Keppra Induced Something Or Other
Our Katie, 16 1/2 years old, was on Keppra for 3 years and took 3000mg per day. She did feel some of the same things you are. She had the depression (slight), weight gain, tiredness and the irritability. She has been off of it since November, since the surgery has been working well. She said she is more cheerful and alert...I just asked her.
Have you had any suicidal thoughts? If something like that is even close in mind, you NEED TO LET THE NEURO KNOW!!! I would still call and fill him in on what is going on. No med is worth totally changing who you are or causing other problems.
Do your parents know??? Please share with them...they need to know.
Keep us posted, I'll be thinking about you...
Proud mom of Katie, the strongest and bravest person I have ever known! GBTG.
