Keppra, generic name levetiracetam, poses a very small risk of triggering suicidal thoughts or tendencies in a person who takes it. It can also cause behavioral changes. If you are a nursing mother, there is a risk that Keppra will pass through your breast milk and possibly affect your infant. Therefore, you should not breast-feed while taking this drug. Keppra can also cause extreme sleepiness and fatigue.
