Levetirecetam ER Question


Hi All, Activus/Watson has discontinued making Levetirectam ER. I do not want to take Lupin made because it causes me to have seizures. Does anyone else know any other manufacturers for this generic Keppra???? Sturg

Best bet is to ask your pharmacy. But there's a list of generic Keppra manufacturers found here:

Thx Nakamova, I am having CVS Pharmacy check this out. Right now the only manufacturers that they have in stock is Lupin which I tried a few years ago & gave me a breakthrough seizure. That is why I am searching for someone to give me a thumbs up on a different manufacturer. Ever anti-epileptic drug affects every single person differently, as you know. Thx again, Sturg

Hey John,

I take Keppra, not the generic brand, tho. I've been taking Keppra (3000 mg/day) since 1999 along with a small dose of Topamax and have the VNS. My epileptologist only prescribes the name brand, no generic anti-epileptic drug, for me. I've experienced side effects from Keppra: depression, dry mouth, and a more, but it helps control seizures for me.

For more info about Keppra vs generic Keppra:
