(2) oblong oval pill- "LU" on one and "70X" on otherside [Possibly from internet?]

I was repeatedly drugged and assaulted useing a combination of this and other antiepilectic drugs by my ex I developed considerable difficulty with memory and agitation and am now having a very hard time piecing together and sequencing events as my neuro chemistry recovers I caution anyone living under the same roof with these medications to seek advice from a Dr about your queries.

@liberated,

Sorry to hear about your past experience in being drugged by this. I couldn't even begin to imagine what that must've been like. Hopefully you were able to take some sort of legal action against her?

@Scooter,

Regarding the difference in names... my research leads me to believe that Levetiraceta is just a simple, yet common misspelling of "Levetiracetam". The only other trade name Levetiracetam appears to be marketed under, is the name Keppra. So I don't know where Levetiraceta (without the 'm') comes into play. Everything else is spelled the same.

Do you know what color the pills are as well?

I (age 25) have been taking levetiracetam for 2 and a half years in 250 mg doses (if I take 500 mg, I'm feeling dizziness the whole day) in the morning and 500 mg dose at night with one tab of phenatoin each with it. I became a patient after getting seizures early in the morning during sleep. Doctor prescribed me this above medication of epilepsy. Yet he told me to continue with it. Now, I want to know:

1. Is this medication right for me despite my epilepsy?
2. If yes, Is the mentioned daily-doses enough for curing me by 3 years?
3. For the last 4-5 months, I have had eczema and an itching problem. Is there a right way to take this medicine for aiding the problem without worrying about side effects as we had experienced with sore throat and losing hair?

Thanking you in hopes of a good suggestion.
