    Keppra & hair loss

    I wondered if any of you had any experience of hair loss using Keppra. I was using Tegretol, Topiramate & Phenytoin (yes, I rattled when I walked) up until May last year when I decided to try to put an end to the cognition & memory problems I had been suffering with. My specialist suggested Keppra as it was a new drug & may prove successful with my type of epilepsy (JME). Turns out it worked like a dream: clear brain, amazing memory etc. However, my hair started to fall out to the point where I had to revert to my previous drug regime in September, but my hair is still thin & has not grown back (probably scared of what I'm going to do next). Just thought someone out there may have had some sort of similar experience.
    Ta in advance...Iain
