Uses

Levetiracetam is an add-on, oral medication that is indicated for the management of refractory epilepsy.

Possible Side Effects

All seizure control medications have potential to cause drowsiness. Some cats lose their appetites temporarily when beginning levetiracetam.

Drug & Food Interactions

​Levetiracetam should not be used in animals who have previously exhibited hypersensitivity to it or any of its components. It should be used with caution in pets with renal impairment; dosing amounts or dosing frequency changes should be considered.

Precautions

This medication has been shown to cause increased fetal and embryonal losses, and should only be used in pregnant animals when benefits outweigh risks. Pets with decreased kidney function should use this medication with caution. When discontinuing the use of this medication, gradual withdrawal is recommended to help prevent the likelihood of seizure-withdrawals.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

    Decreased frequency for seizures

    By Levetiracetam on Jul 24, 2020

    My pup was having seizures every two to three weeks. This was the first medicine that he was put on. It helped decrease the frequency of the seizures to every six to eight weeks but not the intensity. He had to be put on another medication to supplement.
