In brief: Lovan = Fluoxetine

Lovan is fluoxetine (prozac), marketed outside the us.
Yes, it can cause behavioral changes. It's prescribed for depression and anxiety, and helps many of those -- so one possible type of behavioral change is successfully managing those symptoms. In some it can also cause agitation, difficulty sleeping, GI symptoms (nausea, diarrhea), etc. It can also cause hypomania & mania in bipolar people.
