Few pointers: Keppra (levetiracetam) is useful for partial complex seizures and could be a good adjunctive medication, but does have side effects including drowsiness, dizziness, emotional problems. Most people tolerate fairly well. An MRI might show presence of an underlying causative lesion, and might be beneficial to check presence or absence of medial temporal sclerosis.
