What is Levetiracetam 500mg Tablet?

Why use Levetiracetam 500mg Tablet?

Features of Levetiracetam:
  • Up to 60-70% of epileptic cats and dogs are not adequately controlled by bromides or phenobarbital. In these cases, Levetiracetam may be prescribed as an add-on treatment.
  • It may be used in the treatment of seizures caused by phenobarbital-induced liver damage or hepatic encephalopathy. In these cases, adding Levetiracetam can allow for a lowered dose of phenobarbital without increasing the frequency of seizures.

How does Levetiracetam 500mg Tablet work?

Levetiracetam is considered an anticonvulsant. It reduces abnormal brain excitement.

What special precautions are there?

Levetiracetam:
  • Should be gradually withdrawn when discontinuing use. This will prevent withdrawal seizures from occurring.

  • Has caused an increase in fetal loss and embryonal loss in laboratory animals.
