Further, methylphenidate used to treat comorbid attention deficit disorder did not precipitate manic features. Levetiracetam should be further studied for its potential use in the treatment of bipolar disorders.

Forgot to ask, is he saying methylphenidate did not precipitate manic features while taking Keppra?

I was at work earlier and just re-read your post. Interesting you actually spoke with Dr. Kaufman?

I am at a weird phase in my battle. I've been off meds for a while and know I can make it through the day, but realize I'm not happy and life seems overwhelming. Sometimes I wish my symptoms were extreme so I could at least be more easily diagnosed. I've been off meds long enough where I almost feel weak, like I'm giving in to "drugs." To medicate or not to medicate, this battle is stressful in itself.

Keppra actually worked better in many ways than other meds I tried, but I got anxious and thought I needed to add this and that etc, etc. I always want "something better" and it can really make getting well difficult.

Keep me posted on your progress with Keppra. I really hope it works for you. I don't know if you ever check out the crazymed site, but the individual totally revamped the Keppra section and it's loaded with information.
