What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Keppra as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of the medication.

Alternatives to Keppra

There are several alternatives to Keppra for treating epilepsy. This can include other seizure medications (see Epilepsy Medication), surgery (see Epilepsy Surgery), or a special diet (see Epilepsy Diet).
While Keppra 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.
