Brief Answer:
Keppra:

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

I am sorry you are having urinary burning. Keppra is not known to cause burning with urination. This symptom could be a coincidence, but there is always the possibility that it is an unreported side effect, or that something happened during the seizure.

I recommend that you go in to an urgent care clinic near you and get a urinalysis done to see if you are developing an infection or showing signs of urinary or prostatic inflammation.

I hope this information helps. Please let me know if I can provide further information or clarification.
