Mixed effects: Levetiracetam can cause adverse effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, and psychiatric aberrant responses. However, you could be experiencing more frequent seizure or localized brain irritability than you know, and quelling this activity may restore cognitive stability. By the way, am pleased your doc stopped atenolol, as anticholinergic side effects could create huge problems.
