Hi All,

My son was diagnosed with JME (Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy) this fall after he had a seizure on the first day of school.  Thankfully, the anti-seizure meds (500 mgs of Levetiracetam (generic for Keppra) seem to be working well as he hasn't had another seizure and his arm/hand jerks haven't happened.  My concern is that he lost about 50 pounds pretty quickly (2-3 months).  It seems like he's holding fairly steady at 220 now (he's a 6'4" football player).  I just want to see if anyone else has experienced sudden weight loss like this.  His neurologist said it's unusual but as long as it's leveled out he's not concerned.
