Withdraw...: If you had been seizures free and your doctor determined it is safe to go off medication - as Keppra (levetiracetam)...it should be rather tapered off rather stop as " Cold turkey"! Your symptoms sounds most as a withdraw.. . if will eventually go away but there is some risk of seizure as well! Talk to your neurologist ASAP.
