About FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET

FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET belongs to a group of medications known as 'anti-convulsant' primarily used to treat seizures (fits) due to epilepsy. Epilepsy is a chronic condition where the patients have repeated fits (convulsions). FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET is used for the epilepsy form in which the fits affect only one side of the brain, but could extend to larger areas on both sides of the brain.

FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET contains Levetiracetam, used in combination or alone for treating symptoms of epilepsy. It works by slowing down the abnormal signals which the brain gives, leading to episodes of seizures. It helps by suppressing specific brain sites responsible for abnormal activity and prevents the spread of electrical signals that cause seizures. It reduces the episodes of seizures but does not cure epilepsy.

Take FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET as prescribed. Your doctor will decide how often you should take FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience daytime drowsiness, disturbed sleep, light-headedness, or dizziness, sleepiness, general weakness, and unexplained infections. Most of these side effects of FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please reach out to your doctor.

Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET affects you, as its intake may make you dizzy or sleepy. Young children (especially less than 16 years) are more likely to develop behavioural changes like aggression than adults, so FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET should only be given under medical supervision to children. Suddenly stopping FRITOLEV 750MG TABLET can cause withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, increased heart rate, tremor, or general unwell feeling.
