General Information on Keppra Oral Solution
The generic name of Keppra Oral Solution is Levetiracetam and it is an anti-convulsion medicine used for treating epilepsy. Medical practitioners prescribe Keppra with gabapentin for treating neuropathic pain as well. In EU countries, Keppra Oral Solution has been approved for monotherapy treatment of partial seizures related to epileptic conditions. You may buy Keppra Oral Solution for the treatment of tonic-clonic seizures, myoclonic epileptic seizures, and for adjunctive therapy to prevent partial seizures. Levetiracetam is also used by vets for treating animals with epileptic seizures.
Side effects of Keppra Oral Solution
Keppra Oral Solution used for treating epileptic seizures can have both mild and severe side effects. The most common side effects that patients might encounter include drowsiness and fainting, unstable walking, pain, weakness, headache, coordination problems, forgetfulness, agitation, anxiety and hostility, sudden mood changes, numb feeling, burning sensation, nervousness, tingling sensation in the feet, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, diarrhea, and skin color change.
One of most serious side effects of Keppra Oral Solution is hallucination, followed by hearing voices or having visions of things and people that don't exist. In some cases, hallucination can reach a point where the patients commit suicide or cut their wrists. If the patient starts hallucinating then they should be referred to a doctor immediately. Most medical practitioners in such a scenario will either provide a hallucination prevention medicine or prescribe a different medicine for treatment of epileptic seizures.
Some of the other major side effect symptoms include severe seizures, which are different or worse than the current seizures; fever followed by sore throat and other throat infections, vision problem including double vision, and allergy symptoms like swelling of face and lips, itchy skin, and rashes.
There are certain precautions that patients need to take before beginning Keppra Oral Solution therapy. Some patients are allergic to Levetiracetam and they need to share this information with the doctor and prevent any serious side effects. The doctor needs to be also informed of the various over the counter and prescribed medicines that the patient is currently taking and also provide information about their current medical and health condition. Since the administration of Keppra Oral Solution can have side effects like drowsiness or dizzy feeling, it is recommended not to drive or operate heavy machinery during the first few weeks of starting medication. The most important thing is that a patient should buy Keppra Oral Solution only if it has been prescribed.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
