I have been on Keppra for over 3 years to prevent partial seizures. It made me drowsy for the first couple weeks and each time I increased, but after I got used to it I feel great! No weight gain as with older medications like depakote (awful!) Just stick with it to find the right dosage and wait for side effects to go away after about 2 weeks.

Comment:
My daughter takes this medication along with her Tegretol and we have been very pleased. The Tegretol alone was not working and she had many breakthrough seizures, especially when sick. She has a virus now and has had no seizures. I do however notice mood swings with her now, which is concerning, but you have to weigh out the benefits and they are worth it.
