keppra

I am currently taking topamax 200mg twice a day. I had a seizure and my doctor wants to try me on Keppra. Can anyone give me any advice on this medicine?

Re: keppra

Keppra has worked for me in fact in changed my life!!!! I take it as my primary anti szr drug and then take two others to control my szrs

I currently take 1500mg twice a day and it works for me there were are few side affects I had a filthy temper for the first 6 weeks my appetitie went down but stabalised.

Other than that I have been fine do deppresive thoughts which I know can be an issue with it all I can suggest is give it a go you won't know until you try

Take care

Re: keppra

What side affects did you have? I only take 500mg in morning and night.
Can you tell me anything about it. Any knowledge about it?
I take topamax to 400mg 200mg in morning and night. It has appetite decrease off and on.
I take them for seizures.
Anything will help. Thank you.
