From this study (2 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.

Daily Headaches-wake me from a dead sleep and last all day. Blocked off left jugular, occuled subclavian vein, and other superficial veins on left side of neck.

Daily and debilitating after November 2008.
