Levetiracetam helps reduce the frequency of partial epileptic seizures, a form of epilepsy in which neural disturbances are limited to a specific region of the brain and the victim remains conscious throughout the attack.
The drug is prescribed along with other epilepsy medications, never by itself.
Levetiracetam side effects that you should report to your health care professional or doctor as soon as possible:
- Sore throat;
- Runny nose;
- Loss of muscle coordination;
The dose may be increased every 2 weeks up to a maximum dose of 1,500 mg twice a day.
For adults and children over 16, the usual starting dosage of Levetiracetam is 500 mg twice a day.
If you have kidney disease, your dosage will be lower.
