Keppra How to Take

Keppra (Levetiracetam) belongs to the class of medications called antiepileptics. It is used in combination with other seizure-control medications to treat and prevent seizures associated with Epilepsy. Keppra (Levetiracetam) does not cure epilepsy and only works to control seizures as long as the medication is taken. Keppra (Levetiracetam) works by affecting the transmission of nerve signals in the brain.

Keppra (Levetiracetam) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Keppra (Levetiracetam) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Keppra (Levetiracetam) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Keppra (Levetiracetam) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Keppra (Levetiracetam), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Keppra (Levetiracetam) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Keppra (Levetiracetam) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Keppra (Levetiracetam) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Keppra Dosage

The usual recommended starting dose of Keppra (Levetiracetam) for an adult is 500 mg taken 2 times daily, with or without food according to your doctor's instructions. This dose may be increased to a maximum of 3,000 mg per day, according to need and as prescribed by your doctor. People with poor kidney function may need a lower dose.

The dose for children is based on body weight and will be calculated by your child’s doctor.

Use an oral syringe to measure each dose of the liquid, as it gives a more accurate measurement than household teaspoons.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Keppra (Levetiracetam) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Keppra (Levetiracetam) at room temperature, protect it from light, and keep it out of the reach of children. Any liquid medication remaining in the bottle after 7 months should be safely discarded.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Keppra (Levetiracetam). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking.

Behaviour problems: Some people have reported changes in behaviour associated with taking Keppra (Levetiracetam). There have been occasional reports of aggressive behaviour, anxiety, hostility, and mood swings in people with or without a history of having these problems.
