Frequently Asked Questions

What is levetiracetam (Keppra) and how does it work?

Levetiracetam (Keppra) is a medication belonging to the class of drugs known as anticonvulsants.

A levetiracetam prescription works by affecting the transmission of nerve signals to the brain, which is believed to trigger seizures.

What are the uses for levetiracetam (Keppra)?

Typically, a Keppra prescription is used to treat and prevent seizures caused by epilepsy.

Sometimes, this medication is used in combination with other antiepileptic medications in order to function most effectively.

How do you use levetiracetam (Keppra)?

A levetiracetam prescription is available as a tablet, a delayed-release tablet, a tablet to be used with an oral suspension liquid, or as a pre-mixed oral suspension liquid. These are all to be taken orally.

Dosage and frequency of use will depend on the severity and frequency of your seizures, as well as recommendations from your doctor based on what other medications, if any, are being used alongside your Keppra prescription.

This medication is usually taken twice daily, with or without food; except for the extended-release tablet, which is typically taken once daily.

Always follow your dosage and frequency of use prescribed by your doctor, because taking more or less than your recommended dosage could increase your risk of negative side effects.

Don’t stop taking your levetiracetam prescription without first consulting with your doctor. Abruptly stopping this medication, without gradually decreasing dosage, could cause seizures to worsen.

In some severe or emergency cases, levetiracetam can be given as an injection. This wouldn’t normally be prescribed for use at home and would be administered by a licensed health professional at a registered medical facility.

What are the side effects and risks of levetiracetam (Keppra)?

There are some symptoms which may appear during the first 4 weeks of taking a levetiracetam prescription, including:

  • Weakness
  • Drowsiness
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Decrease in appetite

These symptoms should lessen or stop as your body adjusts to the medication.

You should consult your doctor immediately if you begin to experience:

  • Signs of anemia (severe fatigue, pale skin, increased heart rate or breathing patterns, increased bruising or bleeding)
  • Severe mood swings
  • Signs of infection (fever, persistent sore throat, chills)
  • Loss of coordination
  • Signs of depression

A small percentage of patients who take a Keppra prescription may experience depression or suicidal thoughts. Talk to your doctor immediately if you begin to experience these symptoms, so the doctor can help you monitor them.

Additionally, this medication can cause a rash as a common symptom, which is also a symptom of a much more serious reaction. Tell your doctor immediately if you begin to experience any kind of rash.

In very rare cases, a serious allergic reaction could occur while taking a Keppra prescription. Seek immediate medical attention if you begin to experience:

  • Itching or swelling of the throat, tongue or face
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe dizziness

Children could be more susceptible to the mood altering side effects of this medication. Very young children (under 4) could also be more likely to see an increase in their blood pressure.

Older adults could be more likely to be susceptible to certain side effects of this medication, such as loss of coordination, dizziness or drowsiness.

Who should not take levetiracetam (Keppra)?

If you’ve ever had kidney disease or a history of mental issues (depression, suicidal thoughts) you could be at a high risk for additional negative side effects.

There are a large number of other drugs that can interact with Keppra, and in some cases this may worsen the side effects that you experience. Talk to your doctor before starting a Keppra prescription if you’re going to be taking any of the following substances:

  • Tricyclic antidepressants (ie. amitriptyline, clomipramine, desipramine, trimipramine)
  • Brimonidine

  • Narcotic pain relievers (ie. codeine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone)

This medication can cause dizziness or drowsiness, so you shouldn’t take a levetiracetam prescription if you’re planning to perform activities that require alertness (driving, operating machinery, etc.). This is especially pertinent during the first 4 weeks of taking Keppra.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should only take this medication when absolutely necessary, as it could be harmful to an unborn child and it can pass through breast milk.

However, because untreated seizures can also be harmful to a pregnant woman and her child, if you are taking a Keppra prescription, don’t stop the prescription without first consulting your doctor.
