Does Keppra Cause Vitamin Deficiencies?
My doctor started giving keppra as a medication for epilepsy a few months ago. Since then my hair has stopped growing long. I know that hair loss is not one of the main side effects of Keppra. I was wondering if Keppra causes any vitamin or mineral deficiencies that might cause my hair to stop growing long.
Keppra does not cause any vitamin deficiencies.
