Dear customer, it is a pleasure to attend to you today, I want to tell you that you have nothing to worry about, levetiracetam which is the drug Keppra does not produce diarrhea, much less after so many months of consuming the drug, typically the gastrointestinal adverse reactions are usually triggered within the first week of treatment, so this diarrhea you are experiencing is probably of food origin, the recommendation is to start with enterogermina every 8 hours for five days and a large intake of water of at least 4 liters of water per day to replace the losses.
