Keppra infusion provides an alternative for patients when oral administration is temporarily not feasible. Conversion to and from oral administration can be done directly without titration, but the total daily dose and frequency of administration should be maintained. There is no experience with administration of the infusion for periods longer than four days.
Keppra infusion 100mg per ml is supplied in 5ml vials in packs of 10 at a cost of £135.00.
