Keppra my son is down syndrome which they have immune deficit I read in side effects it causes infection? But it didn't say what kind.so what am I to watch for? We had him on low dose due to the fact all the other we tried he had severe reactions.:-)
Side effects of Levetiracetam can weaken the immune system and lower blood counts. It also can cause flu-like symptoms. While these side effects are rare, they can occur. I think that is what your DR meant when he said it causes infection. However, I'm not your doctor and I don't know the entire scenario going on with your son. I suggest you take any concerns/questions to the DR and let him explain it until you fully understand. Hope everything works out for your son. Good luck!
