Generics: Keppra (levetiracetam) is the name brand and made by only one manufacturer...Ubc. Levetiracetam is the generic which has to comply with fda to be 100% +/- 20% of the milligram percentage of the active name brand. There are countless different generic manufacturers...If you are worried about the generic potency d/w your doctor and probably get a blood level to see how your body absorbs the drug...
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
