Thank you for posting your query.

Torleva (levetiracetam, Torrent pharma) is a good anti epileptic drug to control seizures. It has a very good safety profile. However, in some people, it can cause behavioural problems and mood swings. If these are minor, you may continue to use torleva. However, if your mood swings are severe and affecting your daily life, then, you should consider stopping it and replacing torleva with another seizure medication.

Please discuss these issues with your neurologist during the next visit.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
