My 3.5 year old daughter was just diagnosed with General Epilepsy - she had five seizures that I know of each time on her sleep with vommiting. They did a EEG in the hospital and the neurologist said that she has to be on Levitiracetam to prevent seizures from happening and also that if her seizures go on uncontrolled, she may end up with brain damage. What are the side effects of this drug? What is the damage vs. benefit? We started yesterday and Ella was up from 2 am to 5 am kicking and restless, was able to talk but unable to sleep. What should I do?
