Hi, Thank you for posting. Treatment and how your body may react to certain medications varies for each individual. To learn more about Keppra & medication side effects, please visit: https://www.epilepsy.com/medications/levetiracetam The goal of treatment with medicines should be –No Seizures and No Side Effects. However, we know that some individuals may experience too many side effects, that are very bothersome or cause other health problems. It’s important that you're continuing to follow-up with your healthcare team to express your concerns and if you experience any potential changes in side effects, changes in seizure types/frequency, symptoms, moods and behaviors to determine what individual treatment plan is best for you. Men living with epilepsy may also experience health concerns that are unique to their gender. Learn about some of the epilepsy related health issues men should be aware of and respond to here: https://www.epilepsy.com/article/2018/6/june-men’s-health-month https://www.epilepsy.com/learn/special-populations/men-and-epilepsyManaging these issues with your epilepsy team can help improve seizure control and your quality of life.
