Default Severe vomiting/abd pain

My 14 year old daughter who was diagnosed with generalized epilepsy 2 weeks ago was placed on Keppra 1/2 750mg twice per day then increase. After the first dose, she had severe vomiting and wouldn't wake up for 16 hrs. The neurologist suggested staying off of it for 24 hrs then cutting the tablet in to 1/4 for the first few weeks. After the evening dose of this, she again woke up with intractable abdominal pain and vomiting for 5 hrs. We took her into the ER and they were able to get it under control with morphine and compazine. This is not one of the side effects listed as common and am wondering if this would go away should we decide to try and ride this out? Thanks.
