I think that above expert answer was posted in the wrong question thread.
you asked about tapering down on keppra.
do you have any other questions about tapering down on keppra?
you need to talk to your neurosurgeons about if it is ok for you to taper down your keppra down to 1000mg BID.
what do you have? keppra 500 or 750mg pills?
if you have been taking it for only 2 weeks, you can most likely move down to 1500mg in the morning and 1000mg at night time for a week and then the second week move to 1000mg in the morning and night
this would be easier with 500mg pills. if your doctor has you on 750mg pills, you will have to ask your doctor for another prescription.
but you have to clear this taper schedule with your neurosurgeons first
do not cut, crush or chew the tablets.
let me know if you have other questions.
