My son is 4 months old now and he started to have seizures. We have encountered 3 seizures which 3 mins is the longest. After that he was given Leviteracetam - Keppra .5 ml 2x a day. But I can still feel when he is sleeping his body is twitching and his hands are moving. I'm thinking that it's involuntary movements which I associated with seizure. Though we are taking the medicine for just a week mow I'm thinking that it has low dosage. Does anyone has the same scenario like this?

Last night, even though we did not miss on his Keppra medication, my son had a seizure attack. I'm about to call our Pedia-Neuro to report this scene. I

thanks Gillian for the reply. Yes, we are closely monitoring especially when he's asleep. Since that's the time the seizure occur.

I don't know that medication in particular but my son was on Lamictal for his seizures and I know that with that one he had to "load" for a few weeks before it was at a proper level to manage the problem.
I would definitely ask the doctor though and read the side effect/allergy information on that drug. The early days of any new medication should be closely monitored in a child that young because they can't tell you how the meds are making them feel.
I hope this helps :)
