    Facial numbness; muscle weakness
    Does anyone know what causes facial numbness when taking Keppra? I feel like I've had Novocaine. Also have generalized weakness. Do these symptoms subside, or stop if there is a medication change?

    I have also experienced some loss of libido while on trileptal. Also keppra doesnt seem to work as well as trileptal as a seizure medication for me. Unfourtinetly trileptal causes my sodium levels to go to low.
