"The reason I ask is because it seems like a lot of ppl don't talk about their children having simple partials . After a seizure, my daughter says first she feels "tongue twisting", then she starts to drool, sometimes…"
"My daughter is a thin 10 year old. She takes 2125 mg/day of keppra (generic). She also has simple partials. When she first went on 3 yrs ago she did have mucus isssues, and it did say this could be an initial side effect of keppra. It lasted…"

"My daughter has simple partial seizures that have generalized, but not always. She always drools durng the seizure. As of right now her EEG activity is in the left temporal lobe, although it seems to be different everytime we go in for one. She is…"
