The correct answer is: "Call the office immediately if you feel like hurting or killing yourself."

Levetiracetam is an anti-convulsant medication used to prevent seizures. One of the significant side effects is behavioral changes and suicidal ideations. It is important to notify the provider office immediately if the client experiences these thoughts. The other instructions do not apply to this particular medication.
