I started taking keppra about 2 months ago now. I am having HORRIBLE side effects from it. I heard a voice in my head, my own, like I was actually the one having the thoughts and all I wanted to do was kill myself. I am not a suicidal person, I have 2 lovely children and a wonderful fiance. I am not in control of these thoughts. I get angry so fast and it is terrible trying to control it. It seems as though it is letting up some since my neuro is taking me off of the meds but it is not gone. Does anyone know how long it will take for this medication to get out of my system, or has anyone else had a similar experience while on Keppra. I know it effects everyone differently but I strongly recommend trying a different medication before trying this one. I am actually afraid of myself and this is an aweful feeling. It seems like this medication has opened up a door in my brain and let the devil in seriously!!! I can't sleep for when I do I have horrible nightmares and the thoughts are there during the day...I am lost and don't know what to do. If anyone has any advice please please tell me. My family is aware of what is going on and I am not alone at all but it is still one of the most difficult things to deal with not being in control of your thoughts or feelings. This is serious and I don't know what to do. Sorry for rambling but the thoughts are just swirling. Thankyou for your time in this matter. I hope you have a wonderful day.
