    Keppra has worked for me so far, I am on a low dose 250mg twice daily. I started only taking one tablet daily to start in order to give my system a chance to get used to the medication. I am having mild break through seizures, I am now taking the medication twice daily, so far so good. I do experience moodiness with the medication and get angry easier than before. I also voice my dislike when some ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking this for 5 years at 1.5 grams a day; no more hallucinations or any other symptoms of my partial seizures, unless provoked by high spiking fevers (my largest trigger).

    This is an important alert! Do not stop this drug without first talking to your doctor. My mother decided to stop taking Keppra without telling anyone, because of having severe headaches. Within a week she was a completely different person with smptoms of hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, anger, and anxiety. We siblings are shocked at the severity of change in her behavior and are at a loss to ... Show Full Comment
