In Reply to: HELP! Experimental drug...KEPPRA posted by Lori on December 21, 2000 at 16:29:40:

: I really need some info on this drug from people who have taken it. I didnt have health insurance so I went for the first time to the hospital clinic for free treatment and the doctor right away wants me to be a part of his keppra trial study. I agreed but am having second thoughts. I really dont trust doctors all that much. Is this medicine safe?

Hi,I am on Keppra and have been for 6 months.It is for my partial complex seizures.
I am now up to 1,500 mgs. 2x a day.
I was put on this after Gabitril and Neurontin failed.
I have noticed that my seizures have changed{I used to have numbness,tingling in my face and head} now it seems as thought I am more noise sensitive,with less numbing.
The way I understand about Keppra is that it was tested for 5 years,and then approved for the USA,last January.
Side effects are minimal on me.
I would be interested in talking with you about this more,either on here or e mail me.
Thanks, Dawn
