Keppra and leg swelling
Sorry about typing mistake. Also has respiratory distress, hard to breathe at times. We are weaning him off the Keppra to see if it is the culprit after reading so many reviews that people over 60 years were getting edema and breathing problems with Keppra. Swelling is NOT reported as a side effect with Keppra...most of the younger epileptic population does not get edema, because possibly they are on LESS medications that are interacting with the Keppra .
