Does Keppra interact with other medications or food?

Keppra (levetiracetam) may interact negatively with medications such as the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory ketorolac. Keppra combined with ginkgo supplements or carbamazepine may also create adverse side effects. However, using these drugs in combination is sometimes the best treatment option for a person with epilepsy. Generally, Keppra does not interact negatively with any foods. Unless your physician tells you otherwise, you should be able to continue eating normally while taking this drug. Alcohol should be avoided.
