    I have been on 3000mg Keppra since left temporal lobectomy in November 2008. I developed neuropathy years ago after starting on Keppra. I finally realized it would manifest shortly after taking my meds. Nothing will stop it, it goes on for hours and hours then I may get some relief if I continue to stay upright and walk. Miserable !! I am seeing a new neuro now, to try to titrate off of the Keppra.... so far I have titrated down to 1500mg but still have the neuropathy and generalized body aches. Also excessive weight gain and now diagnosed as pre-diabetic ... one side effect after another !! Has anyone had any severe issues titrating completely off the Keppra ? I'm so anxious to be totally free of this drug !! It did it's job of keeping me seizure free for 8 years but i don't know if I may just not have seizures any longer after the lobectomy, and after so long I'm just suffering the side effects of the medication that I may not even need anymore ??!! Please reply if you have any answers that may help me !! Thank you !!

    Had epilepsy for 2 years. I tried dilantin and had very bad side effects. Now on 500mg of Keppra twice a day. Been taking for a month now and i just had a diaphragm spasm. Wondering if it is a side effect or if i should log as a seizure? Even though i was conscious it might have been a seizure. Anyone know which i should log as? A side effect or a seizure

    I have WPW and am just starting Keppra. I had a random grand mal 2 weeks ago. Seized for 4 minutes and was unresponsive for another 6 minutes after. I woke up very confused, couldn't answer any questions. I literally laughed in the first responders face when he told me I had a seizure (I have no history). Normal EEG and CT scan, but since then I've had auras a couple times, so they're starting me on Keppra. Wondering how it interacts with WPW and if other people have had any issues with that?
