Hello

Both tablets contain Levetiracetam and she can take whichever is available. Probably you can also choose which one to buy based on the price.Whats important is not to miss any doses.

Hope this helps!

Dear rajkumarnakra, welcome to hcm.
if you are finding it difficult to find the tablet in a certain place, I would suggest you that U insist or request from the nearest chemist/pharmacist to get the same and make an advance payment sayin that you would dedicatedly take the medicine from there itself and would continue taking henceforth also. They should be able to get you the tablet from their distributor in a day or two maximum and help you out in this regard.
thank you:-)
