Could low dose of Keppra over 8 years still cause KEPPRAGE?
have been on keppra for 8 years. Initially it was 2x a day/500 mg per dose. Over the last three years it is simpley one 500 mg pill a day. I have been seizure free for 24 years - only had epilepsy due to brain surgery. I am just so fearful to be on nothing b/c of driving, caring for kids, etc.
However I read with interest on the boards people feeling just distant/emotionless/cold and honestly that is me described completely. I am so hopeful that leaving Keppra behind will bring me back to normal but worried that my dose is so low that Keppra IS NOT responsible for my moods, etc.
Could a low dose still cause my anxiety/cold/emotionless feelings or is this just more common in the higher doseages? thanks for the feedback
