Is there anyone that is on Levetiracetam 500mg or other meds for complex partial epilepsy, intractable that experience vibration like feelings in your head? It is hard to describe feeling. It is almost like my brain is not firing properly across.

Welcome to e health forum.

You may be experiencing the side effects due to the medication itself.

Common neurological side effects associated with the use of Levetiracetam include - somnolence, dizziness, vertigo , depression , nervousness , ataxia, amnesia ,anxiety, emotional lability , hostility, and paresthesia.

If you have issues that are intolerable then you might consider consulting your neurologist and seek either a change of medication or adjustment of the dosage.

I hope this helps.
