  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • Although I am now 65 and I have been taking 3000 mg of Keppra every day for the past 4 years since my seizure, I have experienced a diminished libido and an even more absence of erections. I am in fairly good condition for my age and prior to this medication I have never had any sexual issues in the bedroom. I can not believe that this is all due to my age, and not the Keppra as my neurologist has claimed; easy for him he's not the man suffering the humiliation and depression and anxiety of not being able to perform. But then he's also half my age and doesn't have any issues, or does he? Please help!
