    The plot thickens .

    You,Tattoo, and others falling through the holes in the safety net, are the people I'm doing this for.

    This afternoon , I used an advanced google to search for a connection. UCB is the most famous Maker of Keppra . Rebel Distributors Corp, based in California, repackages meds among other things. They also sell the generic , levetiracetam . To do the advanced google query, I put the words rebel distributors in the center field and ucb in the top field.
    That query found the Database link below . . I guess Rebel Distributors corp has a contract with UBC . This search caught Stat RX USA too. Both are some of the sellers of the generic , levetiracetam , too. Very very interesting.

    UCB farms out the Keppra process.
    1. Lundbeck, NextPharma , Rontag Laboratorios, and United Drugs have contracts to make the Brand name in different parts of the world. Probably part of their contract with UCB prohibits them from marketing the generic.

    2. Other companies, which I've mentioned, repackage the drugs and print the inserts.
