Levetiracetam is used in the treatment of epilepsy and seizures.
How it Works
Levetiracetam controls seizures by suppressing the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain. A seizure is a short episode of symptoms caused by a burst of abnormal electrical activity in your brain. Therefore when Levetiracetam suppresses the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells it also directly controls the seizures occuring.
