Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes both can be taken.

Since you are weaning of klonopin, this will be a short term combination.

Both together can increase confusion, mental judgement impairment, fatigue.

But If you are used such doses for sometimes, may not be a problem.

Should be supervised by your doctor the weaning off process.

Why are you on levetiracetam?
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
