Anti-epileptic: Leviteracetam is an anti-epileptic drug of the modern era, and helps control a variety of seizure disorders, even cases of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. Can be used in post- hypoxic action myoclonus. Does not have profound drug-drug interactions, but does cause drowsiness, dizziness, and occasional psychiatric adverse events.
