I have had anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember. Being an angry person isn't a new idea for me, but I will say I do feel more out of control. I feel I am raging out more than I used to, My depression is worse, my suicidal thoughts are more of a regular thing than an occasional thing. I really had thought this was all mental health shit until someone was saying I should talk to my neurologist and I looked up side effects of my med. I take 4 750ml time release a day. I think they are making my mental health worse.

Been on 750mg twice a day for over a year, because of a meningioma that was removed with a craniotomy. I came here to further understand, and the video did just that. I did not expect however, to become obsessed with a shirt...😂

I was taken off of Keppra today and I hope it does help me with my mood swings. I have experienced "Keppra Rage" and was pretty shocked to find out it was my meds causing so much anger and aggression. I swear this drug is the devil and shouldn't be on the market. Thank you for your video you have answered so many questions I had about this side affect and why it happen.

Very informative video, especially the distinction between irritability being likely to be over-reported compared to depressive symptoms

Is there a medication that seems to help the most? My 9 year old son was on the generic version of Zarontin and then Divalproex ER and neither worked so they have now prescribed Keppra. I am so lost because I want to fix this for him so badly. He only has 4-5 absence seizures a day and the medications have lessened them but not stopped them. They switched him to Keppra because he was having cluster seizures while on Divalproex. I've heard awful things about Keppra and I just wish there was just a magic pill that fixed it for everyone.

I don't have epilepsy I've had 3 seizures in the past year they gave me Keppra 250 mg a day I have every side effect there is
Mia J (1 месяц назад)
I get seizures under stress. I thought that meant I wasn't epileptic since the tests came out clear, but apparently thats not true. Even if you have 1 seizure in your life time you're probably epileptic. You just haven't had that specific trigger again or you've learned to cope with it
Cow6oysfan21 (1 месяц назад)
+Zack Zefferini they put me on Depakote 500 mgs aday. This medication seems like it does the same exact thing as Keppra and doctors still can't figure out why I'm having them have not had one since April
Zack Zefferini (1 месяц назад)

I got diagnosed with a seizure disorder, after having just one seizure, last year ago. I started having a seizure after a BC control. They gave me keppra 500mg a day. Keppra totally ruined me. I had seizures, paranoia, suicidal thoughts, loss of appetite and paranoia. It ruined my life. I hardly remember anything what happened while I was on keppra. I went to see a specialist for epilepsy... what happened I only had seizure because the withdrawal. Keppra is dangerous!

Been on Keppra 500 mg per 12 hours for 3 1/2 years and fairly stable. Definitely cut way back on my complex partial attacks. Suicide? Think about it? Yes, even before I ever took seizure meds. Ever try it? No! I did get rid of all firearms in my house and I am former military. Suicide is an ugly way to deal with the crap and have your loved ones have to pick up the pieces what's left and messing their lives up >>> think about that!! Don't do it! Seek help.

Yes! Never murder even yourself. My first attempt was at 18. See the devil is waiting when you are at your most vulnerable. A friend whom i told could drive my car to and from work while his was in the shop and i was out of town i returned to find totalled, the female i was dating at the time broke up with me..I had wound up overdrafting my account by 1800$ which felt very overwhelming that young. So I decided to isolate myself from my roomates prepping for a house party. I walked outside with a hefty bottle of vodka and chose solitude with a side of drink. Not even a minute after i took a swig a voice that was not my owb which i had never heard prior basically started pleading with me to simply go swallow a whole bottle of sedatives, continue to drink, and i would die without pain. Reincarnate into a new body with better parents everything would be better,than my greatest wishes in life. To begin no I was not schizophrenic, as all humans deal with situational depression in life I too had experienced that. BUT never in my 18 yrs of life had i ever even considered suicide. 25 now and further life experience as well as God healing me physically with no explanation from a dr than someone must be watching over you I know now that was the voice of an evil spirit. They call strong drink spirits for a reason it allows a different spirit than yourself to influence you. See after that voice pleaded with me almost as if on autopilot i downed copious amounts of vodka and a full bottle of sleeping meds.. I woke up id say 16hrs later pain from sturnum rubs, charcoal burning my throat and a nurse saying "this won't hurt too bad" while ripping a cathetar from my penis, but i lived. The next suicide attempt consisted of a full bottle of brake fluid for a car and a sams club/costco sized bottle of extra strength acetaminophen. Just to make sure it was permanent i believe i waited over an hour until the pain was so severe i told my parents. They of course scared beyond belief rushed me to the hospital. This is something i still am haunted by today. See it is one situation for a DR to scare a patient to teach them a lesson, but it is no joke when they tell you, and your family you ARE going to die, and was too late to pump my stomach, as well that tylenol death can last up to 2 weeks with agony nonstop. My liver was failing, I saw my dad as well as mom cry nonstop and pray for me. This i believe was singlehandedly the most selfish scarring action towards my own family to date. Yet God had true mercy on me because i was in intense mental pain and listened to the demon/devil telling me it would ease the pain. Well as i sat in that hospital bed i still yet didn't believe a God really existed let alone loved me.. All it took was a true genuine regret, and hoping to myself I could live again and love my family. The next day my liver was miraculously healed better condition than before poisoning myself. Not sure why, but i felt obliged to share one of the many chances ive had on earth. Sure it's hard being a vet, and i sincerely respect the good intentions im sure led you to join. Sad thing it is knowing a few soldiers and marines who now know some bit of the truth that plagues them being part of the murder, opium harvests, and propoganda perpetuated by the strongest military in the world. Forgive yourself and ask to be forgiven by tour Father Yahweh and his physical form Jesus. Im sure you could have fell one inch in the worst angle and been found by someone but dead. Thank you for sharing and reminding me how good Gods been to myself:)

Hi. I have been taking Keppa ( 500 mil 2/day) since 2004 or so. I remember I did notice mood swings at that time however things did mellow out. This medication definitely help me. I also take tegretol (400m/2day) and i have seizure free for over at least 15 years. My mood is generally stable and I'm more on the happy side. However like most people I can get depressed every now and then. Sometimes I can get a little moody and that may last only a day or 2 and then I'm back to my normal self. I often wonder if the Keppra makes my bad mood more intense or if my occasional bad mood is normal.

David Atchison Hi David, My names Jun. Im not too familiar with youtube commenting, so I dont know if you know which comment I am replying to you about. I saw your comment about your experience with Keppra and Tegretol that you’ve been taking since 2004. Would it be okay if we connected somehow? Ive been on tegretol and clobazam since around 2001-2002ish.....it certainly hasnt controlled my seizures to the point that i have 0, but I havent had to deal with any significant behavioural issues. My neurologist suggested Keppra recently, but Im hesitant to get on the band wagon because of the negative press about this keppra-rage. Anyway, if you are open to sharing, I would love to hear more about your experience on Keppra and Tegratol. Many thanks

' keppra rage " is total rubbish. Mood swings are caused by most epilepsy medication not just keppra. However some children have tantrums in order to get what they want. There is a big difference between mood swings and uncontrolled rage. Its a stupid expression someone on google search made up.
Lauren Cooper (11 дней назад)
No its real, i have suffered from it every time my dose has been increased. No rage issues before i started taking keppra at age 33 and no previous history of epilepsy. Everyone reacts diffrently to medication and just becuse u haven't experienced it doesn't mean others havent.
MrVidification (1 месяц назад)
'Keppra rage' no doubt only relates to a minority of people that do experience the worst side effects. It's not just children that have epilepsy of course, and not everyone has epilepsy from a young age or birth. Perhaps the drug has been reported to show more severe mood swing changes than others, but whether it warrants that label, I don't know... we would have to take in many factors such as present lifestyle and related issues, and know the truth in as to whether a person is truly keeping up with their medicinal intake etc. 'rage' may be considered a harsh term
TRIPPLE STACKS (3 месяца назад)
any medication can cause all sots of behaviors in people just because it doesent do it to you don't mean it don't do it do others.

I was having a tough day and struggling with the side effects (I’m on week 3) and found your video by chance. I really like how you continuously balance points of view, and you have a great style that kept me engaged. Keep up the videos, and now know they’re being seen in Australia too! Also you mentioned a new medication near the end of your video that may have less of these effects but couldn’t catch the name- can you tell me what it was?
The Seizure Doc - NY Epilepsy Medicine PC (7 месяцев назад)
Thank you for your support and spreading awareness and education! The medication that is similar to Keppra with perhaps lower adverse mood side effects is Briviact. I will post more videos here but you may also want to check out our facebook page NY Epilepsy Medicine PC where we post these videos as well as do weekly live sessions where I answer questions every monday night 8-9 eastern time! Stay strong!

Hey my daughter is 10 and she’s been taking keppra since she was 3 over a yr ago she’s been having these freek outs she can communicate with her cp. but I also think it can be her hormones since she is ten and can’t express herself plus the side effects of the two seizures dugs she’s taking. Should we switch meds with her neurologist at her next appointment.

+Jessica kragler i am type 1 diabetic and also a epileptic on keppra. I often get aggressive when my blood sugar is out of control but the aggression became alot more prominent when i started taking keppra and lessened when my dosage was lowered. Keppra also made symptoms of low blood sugar less noticeable to me so i thought i was fine and would refuse to eat anything often resulting in me needing a hospital stay to stabilize me.
Jessica kragler (7 месяцев назад)
New York Epilepsy Medicine PC oh and we just found out a yr ago that she also has type 1 diabetes cause her dad has it. And her freak outs have started somewhere around the that time
The Seizure Doc - NY Epilepsy Medicine PC (7 месяцев назад)
Tough to know what is the cause - I can say if adverse mood is related to medications it usually shows up early in exposure to the drug or early once a certain dose is reached and is usually worse at higher doses. You may want to work with your doctor to come up with a plan to determine if meds are part of the problem or not. Stay strong!

Great idea! I like that "Little Seizures" sometimes we need to laugh it off! It can be hard to talk to people including doctors if a medication ends up causing suicidal thoughts. I know many people that are afraid of being hospitalized (behavioral).
