I know what you mean. Saw a new Dr last week. He's an Epileptologist so hoping he can help with some of problems I've had recently. He's weening me off the Carbatrol XR over the next two months. Says… read more

Does Anyone Take Levetiracetam XR (Keppra XR) 2x A Day?

Does Anyone Take Levetiracetam XR (Keppra XR) 2x A Day?

Tonight I am going to divide the 3000 mg of Levetiracetam Extended Release tablets and take half at bedtime and half in the morning. This is to stop the afternoon seizures.

Does anyone else take the extended release twice a day and if so how much do you take and does it work well that way for you?

FYI: My doctor has prescribed it this way.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

I already answered that. I have already taken Keppra, but had no idea Levericetam XR was Keppra!

I know how to find the equivalent sites the the US Epilepsy Foundation in many other nations and likewise the government sites in all nations that provide one that is the equivalent of the US… read more
