Have you taken levetiracetam (Keppra)?

I have been diagnosed by Mayo Clinic as having Amyloidosis. I am now experiencing numerous falls. I just started taking Keppra yesterday to see if there is some relationship with seizures or to see if Keppra will minimize the falls. The falls seem to result from tremors in the hands, arms and legs in that order. Has anyone else had a similar experience and have you had any success with medication?

Welcome to Connect, @bensondexter
I'm confident that you will get response about Keppra from members sharing in this discussion. I also wanted to let you know that members are talking about amyloidosis in the Blood Cancers & Disorders group https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/blood-cancers-disorders/

– Current diagnosis is Amyloidosis and multiple myeloma https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/what-a-shocker/
– Diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis. What can I expect? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/diagnosed-with-al-amyloidosis-would-like-to-hear-from-someone-about-what/

I'd like to clarify the timeline of your symptoms. Were you having falls before starting Keppra, and were prescribed Keppra in order to reduce the frequency of falls? Are the seizures a recent development related to amyloidosis?
