I never had any problems feeling different while on Keppra all those years. My blood pressure was always fine, came back normal. The only thing Ive noticed a change in, is after I was taken cold turkey off both medications, Carbatrol and Keppra in March when I was admited for my VEEG, and then put back on just the keppra, I had lots of times during the day that I would get numbness and tingling sensations in my hand and foot on my left side. It would at times go to my right side, but most of the time stayed on my left side. Since I didnt have any of this year before being taken off the medications, I chalked it up to being taken off suddenly off both medications in order for them to see where my seizures were at. I went from March through May, with all this taking place. My dr tried me on different add on medications, and then tried to wean me off the Keppra, and it got worse. in my eyes, the medications he was trying to add wasnt working, and since I was so use to the carbatrol and keppra, and then the carbatrol not being there no longer, I think it was my body's way of saying the keppra was holding the seizures, but not being able to hold back the symptoms of wanting to start a seizure, with the numbness and tingling coming about.Since you so long on keppra,did you ever had flue like symptoms but in a wierd way?
For example..At night you nose start running in the morning you wake up with a running nose and sometimes sore throat but after an hour everything is fine that it begins again in the evening like a cycle.
When i was on generic teva keppra i din't have this but had other problems when i swtiched to the brand its like ie became sick and its been like this for 3 months.The wierd thing is that it passes away after i wake up till the night again.Sounds familar?
Did keppra caused you high blood pressure ever?
did you feel like one of your arms is weak and got a wierd feeling?
I never had this before keppra even when i wasn't on aed and kept having seizures every day but now i feel it and the wierd thing is that when i don't think about it i don't feel it but when i notice it i keep feeling it the whole day!.
Ive since been increased on my keppra to 3000mgs and put on the XR. So Im eager to see if the change will improve things.
