Comment:
I have a few dizzy and/or weak spells using this medicine, but it's a lot better than having a seizure. I was also told by my neurologist to take vitamin B12 with it once a day and another dose at night without the B12. Taking 500 mg twice a day. I was having a seizure once or twice a week, and have no more since being on this generic for Keppra.

Just started med 4/15/13. Have what they thought is a intercranial hemor. But now they dont know what it is??? Had sym of mild stroke and blacked out driving. So...they put me on this med. Since April 15th, I have taken regularly. Within 30-60 min I am sooooo tired and feel like a zombie. Cant think or function at all. So..... I sleep for about 2-3 hours so it wears off a bit. Hopefully ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Have had this mild seizure disorder for years, liked this drug the best. Since beginning the treatment I have experienced a gradual-but noticeable decline in seizure episodes to where they are now almost non-existant. However, for me there has been a noticeable increase in needed periods of sleep. No other side effects noted.
