CARRYING AND STORING SPRITAM® (levetiracetam)
Convenience at home or on the go
SPRITAM is available in 4 strengths and comes in a blister pack containing single-use doses. It is designed to be easy to take to work, school, and even on vacation.
Since SPRITAM rapidly disintegrates* in the mouth with just a sip of liquid, you don’t need to hide or disguise the tablet in food. This may mean one less edible item to pack when traveling. Plus, SPRITAM is a solid, individually-packaged tablet:
- No spoons or medicine droppers are needed
- Does not need to be refrigerated
*In an average time of 11 seconds (range of 2 to 27 seconds).
One of the most important ways to manage your epilepsy is to take your medicine as prescribed and to never miss a dose. Whether you’re at home or on the go, plan ahead:
Try to always have enough medicine on hand
Have a backup plan in case you run out
Check ahead with local pharmacies when traveling
Store SPRITAM at room temperature
59°F to 86°F (15°C to 30°C)
Keep SPRITAM and all medicines out of reach of children.
Setting up a reminder system, such as an alarm on your cell phone, may be a helpful way to make sure you remember to take SPRITAM or administer it to a loved one.
