Follow your doctor's directions. Call if you have any questions. Treatment will usually be started with 1000 mg once a day.
Keppra XR tablets must be swallowed whole. They should not be chewed, broken, or crushed.
It's OK to take Keppra XR either with food or without food, but it's a good idea to take it the same way every time.
Don't take more than the doctor prescribes. If you think you've taken extra tablets, call your doctor for advice. For a larger overdose, call your local poison control center or emergency room right away, unless you have special instructions from the doctor.
Don't stop taking Keppra XR or change the amount you use without talking to the doctor first. Stopping any seizure medicine all at once can cause serious problems.
Keppra XR should be stored at room temperature, away from light and humidity. (Don't keep the pills in the bathroom if it's damp there.) Of course, keep all Keppra XR out of the reach of children.
