Good seizure control. Main side effect has been moodiness and anger/extreme irritability, but it is manageable.

This Drug made me crazy and irritable when in the company of other, when I would not normally act in such a fashion.

I used to be on Depakote but I continued to have seizures. I was changed to Keppra since I wanted to start a family and it would be safe for me and the baby. I have not had a seizure in over 6 years.

I have been on 2000mgs twice daily. I suffer from extreme moodiness and irritability and rarely any complex partial seizures stemming from temporal lobe epilepsy. The medication for the most part works along with 750mgs of lamictal daily. I've recently in the past few years have been suffering memory loss. Not sure if it's the meds or my condition. The family says that I was a completely different person when taken off the meds while staying in an epilepsy monitoring unit at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. I have to do a double take all the time wherever I am to make sure I don't take out anything on anyone especially at home with the family, especially the youngsters. As funny as it sounds a new family puppy has really helped me cope along with the condition. To all reading this review, remember we have to do whatever it takes to be around for all of our loved ones as long as we can.Stay STRONG. Hope this helps all suffering from this awful condition. Good luck to all of you. Maybe puppies are the cure. Lol.

I take 3000mg/day , causes irritability and drowsiness, but overall it controls the seizures well. I have generalized seizures as a result of a brain injury a few years ago. Have been on this drug ever since, dose has been slowly increased over time. Does no completely elimiante my seizures but its effective.

Medication works great. I stopped taking it for some time and seazures came back 3 moths later. I have to prevent headaches, stress and heavy lifting off the ground. I still get sudden headaches, feel dizzy, black out or even see this blurry but colorful spot that can't prevent from staring at it. Overall this medication works for me.

I was started on 1500 mgs twice a day after having a series of full seizures in April of 2018. I had not had a serious seizure since February of 2009 after a so-called psychiatrist prescribed Celexa in the amount of 60 mgs... 20 mgs above the manufacturers recommended maximum dosage. I had never had a seizure in my life until I had that large dose of Celexa.
