  Description
Open-Label Levetiracetam All 17 participants in the study received Levetiracetam. The initial dose was 250 mg/day, which was increased to 250 mg BID after 1 week. The dose was then increased by 500 mg/day each week (given in BID dosing) to a maximum of 3,000 mg/day. The dose was raised more slowly or the maximum dose was not reached if response occurred at a lower dose or side effects were problematic.
