1 doctor weighed in:

On keppra (levetiracetam) for 8 months now- 8 mg 2x day. Due to a fall, had 3 grand mal seizures 4-5 months after fall. Can i wean off keppra (levetiracetam)? Experiment getting off?

In brief: No, no, no

Do you wish more seizures? Do not stop, do not experiment, do not drive, do not do activities at heights, do not use power equipment.
Do see your neurologist and make sure your dosing is appropriate for your problem, as i doubt your Keppra (levetiracetam) amounts are correct if you indeed are taking 8 mg twice daily.
