This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
I was wondering if anyone has had experience of using Keppra (levetiracetam) for controlling stiffness. My Neuro has suggested I start using this to see if it will help with the stiffness problems I am having.
If you are using it what dosage are you taking?
Yes, we just talked about Keppra on another thread just a few days ago.
There are quite a few different doses your doctor might start you on. It can range anywhere from 500mg. twice a day, up to 1500 mg twice a day. I started low (just because I have a sensitivity - and aversion - to drugs in general), but titrated upward. I'm currently taking 1000 mg. twice a day.
