Thumbs down Keppra withdrawl?

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the epilepsy board (I don't have siezures). I have Bipolar Disorder, and I take Keppra 1000mg, which works great for me. But I spaced out and forgot to take my meds for the first time in years. I skipped Friday night, and then went back on it Saturday, and I'm still suffering horrible withdrawl - headache, nausea, dizziness. I spoke to my psychiatrist, and she said that it would just take time.

Is there anything else I can do? I feel really funky in the head still, and it's freaking me out.
Thanks very much,

Sponsors Lightbulb

I don't know what else you can do but I was once on keppra and it made me so so sleppy.I was falling asleep in classes even when I had test in my classes
I was falling asleep. When you fist started to take keppra did it make you unbelievablely tiered? My neurologist finally took me off of it and not a moment to soon.
