There are several alternatives to Keppra XR for treating epilepsy. This can include other seizure medications (see Epilepsy Medication), surgery (see Epilepsy Surgery), or even -- in some cases -- a special diet (see Epilepsy Diet).
While Keppra XR is often effective and well tolerated, it does not work for everyone. It may also cause side effects. With so many different treatment options for epilepsy, people should not settle for treatment that is not effective enough for them or that causes bothersome side effects.
This medication is available in the following strengths:
- Keppra XR 500 mg tablets
- Keppra XR 750 mg tablets.
This medication is available in generic form (see Generic Keppra XR).
