How Should Levetiracetam XR Be Stored?

Levetiracetam XR should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat, in an airtight container. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your levetiracetam XR as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 

Alternatives to Levetiracetam XR

There are several alternatives to levetiracetam XR for treating epilepsy. This can include other seizure medications (see Epilepsy Medication), surgery (see Epilepsy Surgery), or even -- in some cases -- a special diet (see Epilepsy Diet).
 
While levetiracetam XR is often effective and well tolerated, it does not work for everyone. It may also cause side effects. With so many different treatment options for epilepsy, people should not settle for treatment that is not effective enough for them or that causes bothersome side effects.
