Shipping Update – January 2022

Shipping times are now closer to normal. However, due to the latest outbreak of the highly contagious Omicron strain, we are anticipating some potential delays in our shipping times. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may now sometimes take an additional 2 – 4 weeks to arrive, depending on the source country of your order. Shipments from the United Kingdom and Canada are generally quicker than from other countries.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

We offer a shipping guarantee when you place an order with us. If your order does not arrive within 6 weeks from the date it was shipped, we will re-ship your order to you at no additional cost.

Call Center – New Hours effective January 17, 2022

Our new call center hours of operation are now 7:00 am – 7:00 pm Central Time, seven days per week.

These changes are due to staffing issues we are experiencing caused by the highly contagious Omicron variant. We anticipate that we will expand our call center hours again within the next 2 – 3 weeks.

If you are experiencing increased hold times or are calling outside of these hours, please leave us a message or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Due to increased demand on telephone networks worldwide, you may experience some intermittent connection problems. If this happens our agents will call you back.

What Keppra Oral Solution is and what it is used for

Levetiracetam is an antiepileptic medicine (a medicine used to treat seizures in epilepsy). Keppra is used:
• on its own in adults and adolescents from 16 years of age with newly diagnosed epilepsy, to treat a certain form of epilepsy. Epilepsy is a condition where the patients have repeated fits (seizures). Levetiracetam is used for the epilepsy form in which the fits initially affect only one side of the brain, but could thereafter extend to larger areas on both sides of the brain (partial onset seizure with or without secondary generalisation). Levetiracetam has been given to you by your doctor to reduce the number of fits.
• as an add-on to other antiepileptic medicines to treat:
• partial onset seizures with or without generalisation in in adults, adolescents and children from 4 years of age
• myoclonic seizures (short, shock-like jerks of a muscle or group of muscles) in adults and adolescents from 12 years of age with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy.
• primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures (major fits, including loss of consciousness) in adults and adolescents from 12 years of age with idiopathic generalised epilepsy (the type of epilepsy that is thought to have a genetic cause). Keppra concentrate for solution for infusion is an alternative for patients when administration of the antiepileptic oral Keppra medicine is temporarily not feasible.

How to take Keppra Oral Solution

A doctor or a nurse will administer you Keppra as an intravenous infusion. Keppra must be administered twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, at about the same time each day. The intravenous formulation is an alternative to your oral administration. You can switch from the film-coated tablets or from the oral solution to the intravenous formulation or reverse directly without dose adaptation. Your total daily dose and frequency of administration remain identical. Monotherapy Dose in adults and adolescents (from 16 years of age): General dose: between 1000 mg and 3,000 mg each day. When you will first start taking Keppra, your doctor will prescribe you a lower dose during 2 weeks before giving you the lowest general dose. Add-on therapy Dose in adults and adolescents (12 to 17 years) weighing 50 kg or more: General dose: between 1,000 mg and 3,000 mg each day. Dose in children (4 to 11 years) and adolescents (12 to 17 years) weighing less than 50 kg: General dose: between 20 mg per kg bodyweight and 60 mg per kg bodyweight each day. Method and route of administration: Keppra is for intravenous use. The recommended dose must be diluted in at least 100 ml of a compatible diluent and infused over 15-minutes. For doctors and nurses, more detailed direction for the proper use of Keppra is provided in section 6. Duration of treatment:
• There is no experience with administration of intravenous levetiracetam for a longer period than 4 days. If you stop using Keppra: If stopping treatment, as with other antiepileptic medicines, Keppra should be discontinued gradually to avoid an increase of seizures. Should your doctor decide to stop your Keppra treatment, he/she will instruct you about the gradual withdrawal of Keppra. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
