HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Keppra is the trade name for levetiracetam, they are the same drug.

There is no known interaction between the keppra/levetiracetam and the zyvox so these too medications can be safely used together

Allergic reactions can manifest in different ways, the most common are itchy rash, hives, swelling.
In severe allergic reactions swelling of the tongue can occur affecting breathing

I hope this helps
