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.

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.
