About Torleva 500 Tablet 10's

Torleva 500 Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medications known as 'anti-convulsant' primarily used to treat seizures (fits) due to epilepsy. Epilepsy is a chronic condition where the patients have repeated fits (convulsions). Torleva 500 Tablet 10's is used for the epilepsy form in which the fits affect only one side of the brain, but could extend to larger areas on both sides of the brain.

Torleva 500 Tablet 10's contains Levetiracetam, used in combination or alone for treating symptoms of epilepsy. It works by slowing down the abnormal signals which the brain gives, leading to episodes of seizures. It helps by suppressing specific brain sites responsible for abnormal activity and prevents the spread of electrical signals that cause seizures. It reduces the episodes of seizures but does not cure epilepsy.

You can take Torleva 500 Tablet 10's with food or without food.  Do not chew, bite, or break it. Your doctor will decide how often you should take Torleva 500 Tablet 10's based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience daytime drowsiness, disturbed sleep, light-headedness, or dizziness, sleepiness, general weakness, and unexplained infections. Most of these side effects of Torleva 500 Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please reach out to your doctor.
