Product Details


Introduction :

Levetiracetam 500mg tablet is a medicine used to treat epilepsy. Seizures are bursts of electrical activity in the brain that temporarily affect how it works. Levetiracetam tablet slows these electrical signals down to stop seizures. Levetiracetam is used to treat certain types of seizures in people with epilepsy, including partial onset seizures, myoclonic seizures, and tonic-clonic seizures. Levetiracetam 500mg tablet can make you feel sleepy, tired or dizzy when you start taking it or increase your dose. It can also affect your vision. If this happens to you, do not drive, ride a bike or operate machinery until this goes away. It can take a few weeks for levetiracetam tablet to work. You may still have seizures during this time. This medicine can be used with other seizure medicines. Keep using all of your seizure medicines unless your doctor tells you otherwise.

This medicine cannot cure epilepsy and will only work to control seizures for as long as you continue to use it. This medicine is available only with your doctors prescription.

Mechanism of Action :

The exact mechanism of action is unknown but does not involve inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmission. Stereoselective binding of levetiracetam was confined to synaptic plasma membranes in the central nervous system with no binding occurring in peripheral tissue. Levetiracetam inhibits burst firing without affecting normal neuronal excitability, which suggests that it may selectively prevent hypersynchronization of epileptiform burst firing and propagation of seizure activity
