    I'm sorry about your father's condition. Increased drowsiness or sleep is a common side effect of Keppra. Keppra, however, needs to be withdrawn very slowly and only under a doctor's supervision as withdrawing it too quickly can cause seizures. 

     

    Be sure to talk about this with his physician. Good luck with your father.
