Keppra (Levetiracetam)

There are three series of prostaglandins: PG1, PG2, and PG3. Each of these has a different chemical structure. And within each series there are many different types, classified by letters A, B, D, E, F etc. In all, there are at least 50 prostaglandins, with new ones being discovered each year.
The three series of prostaglandins are each derived from a different fatty acid. Series 1 and 2 both come from the linoleic acid family. Series 3 is derived from eicosapentaenoic acid, a member of the alpha-linolenic acid family and most commonly found in oily sea foods.
Each prostaglandin has a different role to play. Health problems can arise when the different series of prostaglandins are out of balance with each other. The balance between the 1 and 2 series PGs can be influenced by diet. In inflammatory conditions, the end-products of arachidonic acid metabolism – prostaglandins series 2, cyclo-oxygenase and thromboxane A2 – are being produced in too great a quantity, whereas PGE1 is not being produced in great enough quantities.
Two of the most widely-used drugs – steroids and Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) work by inhibiting the biosynthesis of prostaglandins.
By suppressing the production of prostaglandins, the drugs dampen down inflammation.
The trouble with this drug approach is that all the prostaglandins are knocked out – including the good ones. Evening primrose oil works in a completely different way from these powerful drugs. Instead of stopping the manufacture of prostaglandins, evening primrose oil goes on to make the anti-inflammatory prostaglandin El, and so it manipulates the prostaglandins but in a completely natural way.
