I take lamictal 200 twice a day and lyrica 200 twice a day which may get increased. The Keppra put me to sleep when I got on heavier doses.

This medication was given to my husband and he had a severe hostile reaction to it. He wound up in jail for family violence. I would recommend a thorough review of all medications and interactions with medications before taking it.
