Levipil is Levetiracetam manufactured by Sun Pharma in India.
it is the new generation of Piracetam called nootrophil by Ucb Pharma.
these medications are potent neurotonic agents.
but levipil is sometimes used for seizures also.
taking this medication has no harm.
but as far as the benefit she would get in such a case is in question.
u can take the question of another neurologist.
it is a costly medication so need to c the cost to benefit ratio
take care.
