Over the past few decades, many patients around the world have suffered from epilepsy, and epilepsy treatment is a long-term process. Thus, the safety and efficacy of medication for epilepsy are of equal importance. Levetiracetam is a second-generation anti-epileptic drug with a unique mechanism of action, good anti-epileptic efficacy, and safety. The therapeutic field has broad application prospects because levetiracetam offers several advantages over other anti-epileptic drugs. In this review, the synthesis, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and reverse reaction of levetiracetam were summarized and discussed. This paper will be helpful for the development and application of levetiracetam.
