  • 1. I've taken keppra for about 8 years. It does reduce seizure activity but there are many side effects. If I forget a dose or two then I'll begin to get these short, involuntary twitches. 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...
