Levi is one brand name for Levetiracetam. According to the Australian Medicines Handbook (AMH), Levetiracetam is indicated for focal (partial) seizures, for primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures associated with idiopathic generalised epilepsy, and for myoclonic seizures associated with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy in people 12 years and older.
Levi is an antiepileptic, or drug that prevents seizures. It is believed that Levi works in cases of epilepsy by inhibiting nerve signals.
