Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and past treatment.

MRI and clinical symptoms would decide the need of further treatment with levipil.

Levipil (levetiracetam) is an anti-epileptic drug and is needed if you had seizures. Otherwise, if the brain MRI is normal, it may be stopped.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
