(1) oblong oval pill "H" on one and "31" on otherside Prescription
(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.

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?


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.
