Yes.: That is a very high dose of Keppra (levetiracetam). Fortunately, Keppra (levetiracetam) is a fairly safe and well tolerated medication but could produce behavioral and mood side effects. I would speak to your prescribing physician about a lower dose or an alternative medication. Increasing doses of Keppra (levetiracetam) usually does not provide further benefit.

Rather high dose: Information provided is insufficient for comprehensive answer, but the dosage described is by far the highest I have ever encountered. Is there are good rationale for this?
