Levitiracetam

Were you looking for information about Levetiracetam? Levitiracetam is a common misspelling of levetiracetam.
 
Levetiracetam (Keppra®) is a prescription medication that is approved to treat partial seizures, myoclonic seizures, and generalized tonic clonic ("grand mal") seizures in people with epilepsy. The medication comes in the form of a tablet or a liquid that is usually taken by mouth twice daily. If you cannot take levetiracetam orally, there is also an injectable form of the medication.
 
Side effects of levetiracetam may include drowsiness, difficulty breathing, and agitation. If the side effects become too bothersome or if the medication does not work as well as intended, there are other alternatives to levetiracetam, including other seizure medications, a special diet, and surgery.
