Can the drug Levipil trigger a reaction causing hypothyroidism?
Ever since I changed from Eptoin to Levipil, the constipation is a factor hurting me, and i am not able to pass stools without a laxative.
My TSH is now 67.

Levepil wont cause hypothyroidism or constpiation. Constipation is a common problem in hypothyroid patients.
Don't worry with thyroxine supplementation and laxative will solve your problem.
Levipil (Levetiracetam) is one of the safest antiepileptic medication.

Best wsihes,
