Hypersexuality is a rare phenomenon in epilepsy patients. Few cases of hypersexuality are reported as a side effect of an antiepileptic drug. Levetiracetam is reputed as a new and safe antiepileptic, yet its sexual and endocrine side effects are not well known. We report a female patient who developed hypersexuality with the addition of levetiracetam to her ongoing carbamazepine therapy.
