I have been taking Keppra for a few years. Within the first year I had a sleepwalking experience where I literally woke up not where I went to bed on my feet. I have been told I have been sleepwalking a few times now and I'm going to see my neurologist tomorrow. Has anybody else had issues like this? I have been prescribed different medications over the years for what I would call a mild seizure disorder (few and far between) I have never had a reaction like this.

Hello, Bob! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you've had.

These anticonvulsant medications can really cause some odd side effects, since they work on brain chemicals. You may also experience mood swings, weight gain, dizziness and headache.

What did you find out from your neurologist? You may need to try a different medication.

Hey Bob! Looks like we're in the same boat. I have been taking Keppra for a long time and have had quite a few episodes of sleepwalking. It was doing a good job controlling my issues with epilepsy so I just dealt with it. Now that I've been having more issues with that I'm going to talk to my doctor about getting off of it.
