Levepsy general information

What is Levepsy used for?

Levepsy tablets 1000mg are used to treat epilepsy, which is a chronic neurological disorder that is characterized by seizures or fits of various different types that can range from mild to severe.  Partial epilepsy is when the area of the brain involved in a seizure is localised.  A local seizure may spread to become a generalised seizure, in which other parts of the brain are involved.  A generalised seizure covers a range of different types, including absences (formally known as petit mal), various forms of myoclonic epilepsy and tonic-clonic (formally known as grand mal) seizures.  Levepsy 1000 is used alone as monotherapy for treatment of partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalisation in newly diagnosed epilepsy in adults and adolescents (16 years and above).  Levepsy tablets 1000mg are also used as add-on or adjunctive therapy to treat partial-onset epileptic seizures with or without secondary generalization in children (1 month of age and above), primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures in adults and children (6 years of age and above), and myoclonic epileptic seizures in adults and children (12 years of age and above).

How does Levepsy work?

Levepsy tablets 1000mg contain levetiracetam, which is an anticonvulsant used to treat and prevent seizures in epilepsy.  Epileptic seizures are triggered by episodes of abnormal electrical activity in the brain, in which a malfunction in the transmission of electrical signals causes repetitive firing and transmission of excitatory nerve messages.  Transmission of electrical signals is controlled by brain chemicals called neurotransmitters and for the brain to function normally it is important to have a balance between excitatory neurotransmitters and those that have a calming effect on nerve cells.  Levetiracetam in Levepsy 1000 does not appear to work in the same way as other anti-epileptics as it does not act as a nerve cell membrane stabiliser to alter basic cell characteristics and normal neurotransmission.  Levetiracetam in Levepsy tablets 1000mg binds to a protein inside nerve cells (neurones) called synaptic vesicle glycoprotein SV2A.  This protein is thought to be involved in the formation, fusion with the cell membrane, and release of vesicles, a process known as exocytosis, which is how neurotransmitters are released from the pre-synaptic neurone into the synapse between neurones.  Levetiracetam in Levepsy tablets 1000mg also inhibits the voltage-dependent calcium channels in the post-synaptic neurones, which reduces the post-synaptic firing (nerve cell action potential) resulting in reduced transmission of excitatory nerve messages.  These mechanisms of action inhibit the repetitive firing and transmission of excitatory nerve messages, which reduces the impulses that cause seizures and contributes to the anticonvulsant effects of Levepsy tablets 1000mg.

Treating epilepsy with Levepsy

Levepsy tablets 1000mg contain levetiracetam, an anticonvulsant used to treat epilepsy in adults and children.  Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that is characterized by seizures or fits triggered by episodes of abnormal electrical activity in the brain, in which a malfunction in the transmission of electrical signals causes repetitive firing and transmission of excitatory nerve messages.  Transmission of electrical signals is controlled by brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.  Levetiracetam in Levepsy tablets 1000mg works, through several mechanisms of action, by reducing the repetitive firing of excitatory impulses that cause seizures and contribute to the anticonvulsant effects of Levepsy tablets 1000mg.   Epileptic seizures vary in type and range from mild to severe.  Partial epilepsy is when the area of the brain involved in a seizure is localised, but may spread to become a generalised seizure, in which other parts of the brain are involved in the seizure.  Generalised seizures include absences (formally known as petit mal), myoclonic epilepsy and tonic-clonic (formally known as grand mal) seizures.  Levepsy 1000 is used alone as monotherapy for treatment of partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalisation in newly diagnosed epilepsy in adults and adolescents (16 years and above).  Levepsy tablets 1000mg are also used as add-on or adjunctive therapy to treat partial-onset epileptic seizures with or without secondary generalization in children (1 month of age and above), primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures in adults and children (6 years of age and above), and myoclonic epileptic seizures in adults and children (12 years of age and above)
