  • Perceived effectiveness for Epilepsy: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: My personality completely changed on Keppra. I became very mean, depressed all the time, and even attempted suicide. I am NOT one to do that. I have NEVER thought of suicide before, thinking it a cowardly way out (no offense), but I think that shows how far out that took me. be VERY careful on this drug. It works great for some, for others not so much.
Side effects: Mood changes
