Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • After taking Keppra for 9 months following a grand mal seizure and subsequent brain tumor removal, I suddenly developed extreme OCD. I literally count everything. When I try to read,the phrases repeat in my head. The simplest task has become a monumental struggle. My physician has had me on 50 mg Sertraline for3 weeks now, along with Xanax. The OCD is still intense.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Imy BMI is 19. Blood pressure is never above 80/58. Heart rate is usually in the 60's. I walk approx 2 miles each weekday morning in an attempt to have more energy. Reason for the post - I am truly so tired (?) (not weak) most days that I sit at a table from 11AM until 8:30 PM. I wake up between 5-6 AM each day and only attend church for activities other than walking. I do not drive, as a rule. My concern is that my level of tiredness is getting worse. My medication has not changed. Wondering if i should I investigate the meds or bp or just be content sitting. Not depressed at all, actually, quite happy.
