    Myoclonic seizure
  • I was on Keppra for 11 years, stopped 1 year ago. It caused depression. I stayed on it to focus on my career and got off at semi-retirement. Getting off it took one year; lowering the dose (very slowly) to below 1/2 caused awful seizures.

If I don't take a dose immediately it'll turn into an aura. Side effects are im always tired, at times suicidal, depressed, awful short term memory, sometimes during a conversation I'll just completely lose my train of thought & either have to ask for a reminder to spark my memory or...

    Generalized seizure
  • Can cause increased moodiness. But in comparison to Grand-Mal Seizures, it's now livable. I can work, drive, do everything as I should be. THANKS TO KEPPRA XR!
