Our son takes it since he had a brain tumor removed. We are curious if this works on neutralizing inflammation.
Levetiracetam (Keppra) is a prescription medication used to treat epilepsy. In particular, it is approved to treat the following types of seizures:
* Partial seizures in adults and children as young as one month old
* Myoclonic seizures in adults and adolescents age 12 and older
* Generalized tonic clonic ("grand mal") seizures in adults and children age six and older.
Levetiracetam is approved only for use in combination with other seizure medications; it is not approved to be used alone.
For more info, please do talk to a doc/pharmacist, take care.
Wish your son the best!
So sorry about your son, while it does not seem to have anti inflammatory effect it is used in neuro conditions to treat pain because it can reduce neurological pain. I guess similar to gabapentin, I am not a doctor but you could probably give him pills of turmeric for the anti inflammatory properties you are looking for if he tolerates it. This is the study indicating it can reduce inflammatory pain:
