Do you take Keppra for epilepsy?
People with epilepsy must stop driving at first. Your doctor will advise you about when it may be possible for you to resume driving again. This will usually be after a year free of seizures.
Common side-effects include feeling sleepy or dizzy especially when first starting treatment or after your dose has been increased - this could be an issue if you are behind the wheel.
If you have been given the all clear to drive by your doctor and have taken Keppra long enough to know how the side effects affect you then you will be fine to drive.
