One thing I do know is that this medication can make you very sleepy. Please try not to drink very much, because it can have a very bad reaction with your medication. I wish I could be of more help. Welcome to our community.
I'm lucky I don't really drink anyway so cutting alcahol out will be easy for me. I have also noticed how tired I am on them. I find I either have a good morning and a bad afternoon or a bad morning and a good afternoon
My husband takes Keppra 2 x 1000mg daily. He had a TC seizure at least once a week. Since Keppra he has been seizure free(16 Months now)
In relation to his side effects tiredness seems to be the main one, he also gets mild anxiety which only started since he started taking Keppra. Compared to other medications the side effects are not bad.
The most common side effects generally are:
Dizziness and unsteadiness.
Mild agitation, anxiety, or depression.
But none of these are severe..
I would recommend that you do some excercise & eat good food(whole grain.....)A heathly lifestyle will increase your energy levels. My husband changed his diet and it helped him.
Take good care of yourself.
Hope this helps

I am new to Keppra. Started taking it on wednesday on a really low dose and its being upped by 250mg every two weeks up until 1000mg. really nervous about taking this drug as been on it before but as a support drug and the result was not good so came off it. How reliable does everyone think it is. i am finding myself going hot and cold and feeling nauseous and a little under the weather.. the high dose will come at about xmas time so wondering how safe it is to drink with them as will be taking them day and night by then. MY seizures are partial seizures and have between 5-10 attacks a day (estimated).
