My 13 year old duaghter was diagnosed with Benign epilepsy in 2008 and not put on medication. After getting a second opinion a year later she was diagnosed with complex-partial and built up to 3,250mg of Keppra every day. She went through a lot of bad moodswings and anger for about a month and then it seemed to even out but after being on it for almost a year I have noticed that her side affects have increased and she is a very different person now with being much more withdrawn, tired, gained weight, depressed, moody, becoming angry in an instant and remaining angry for hours. She used to be very happy, always apologizing quickly and had more energy. She has also forgotten important events from the last 2-3 years which her Dr. says is from the seizures she had but I think it is a medication side effect. She has also been having back aches almost every day. Does anyone else have that who is on Keppra? She never had more than 4 seizures a month and 95% were at night during her sleep. They were all tonic-clonic seizures.
I would really appreciate some input - PLEASE!!
