hello anna, welcome to healthcaremagic, you have mentioned that he is on levitricetam but you have not given his weight and you have not mentioned if he is on the same medicine from beginning.If he is on the same medicine then we should adjust it according to his bodyweight and go up to maximum dose and with that also he not controlled then it is better to change the medicine.
