The neurologist put my 15 year old autistic daughter on Keppra today for the seizures and I have to give her the 1st dose tonight. She is such a happy, energetic girl and I am so heart broken and scared to start her on the meds. She has had two grand mal seizures in (appx.) the last month and the last one was caught on video (on the school bus going to school).

I am so worried about side effects after reading the various posts here. Please help?
