What happens if I miss a dose of levetiracetam?

If you miss a dose of levetiracetam, take it as soon as you are able. If you are almost due for the next dose, just wait for the next dose. Do not take two doses at once. It is important to take this medication regularly and as prescribed. If you often forget to take your levetiracetam, talk with your doctor or pharmacist to find ways to help you remember to take it.
