The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen are presently reviewing potential Generic Keppra lawsuits involving consumers who have suffered breakthrough seizures after taking Generic Keppra-Levetiracetam.

Keppra is a well known anticonvulsant used to treat both simple and complex partial seizures as well as myclonic seizures. Keppra is used in the treatment of migraines and neuropathic pain for the treatment of autism and social anxiety.

People taking the generic version of Keppra have not only suffered breakthrough seizures but also long-term migraine headaches, drops in blood sugar, dizziness, muscle spasms, depression, shortness of breath, and aggressive behavior.

The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen are offering a free consultation to anyone having taken Generic Keppra-Levetiracetam and are now suffering breakthrough seizures or any adverse side effects, call us today at 1.800.718.4658.

A Switch To Generic Keppra  Could Cause Breakthrough Seizures

In some cases, switching from Keppra brand to the generic version could induce a breakthrough seizure. Epileptics with a higher intensity of seizures are more likely to suffer a breakthrough seizure.

A breakthrough seizure is an epileptic seizure that occurs, in spite of the use of an antiepileptic that has successfully prevented seizures in the patient previously.

Breakthrough seizures may be more dangerous than non-breakthrough seizures because they are usually unexpected by the patient, who is already considered to be free from seizures and therefore, does not take any further precautions.

FDA policy leaves room for significant differences between versions of the same drugs, name-brand and generic alike.

Breakthrough Seizures Can Be Life Changing

These differences can cause harmful changes in a patient’s condition. One epileptic breakthrough seizure caused by a change in medication can have life changing consequences which can include the loss of a driver’s license, loss of a job, serious injury, and even death.

If you have taken Generic Keppra-Levetiracetam and are displaying any side effects please contact an experienced Generic Keppra lawyer at The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen today at1.800.718.4658 for a free consultation.

The (AAN) American Academy of Neurology believes that doctors should make every effort to identify when patients can be treated effectively with less expensive alternative medications.

More importantly, the discretion regarding this decision should remain with the prescribing doctor and should not be determined by healthcare coverage limitations or pharmacies.

Given the current uncertainty, and the potential negative effect on quality of life from seizure recurrence, AAN believes Keppra therapy should not vary.

Since authoritative evidence based on the effects of generic Keppra is lacking, doctors are urged to report cases of breakthrough seizures or drug toxicity to the FDA when a patient has been prescribed generic Keppra.

Substitution of generic Keppra without the consent of the doctor and patient can have devastating consequences for seizure recurrence.
