The exact mechanism for antiepileptic activity is not known but it is presumed that Torleva works by preventing the release of chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) in the brain by binding to specific proteins (synaptic vesicle protein). It indirectly helps in increasing the activity of inhibitory neurotransmitter (GABA) which prevents the abnormal activity in the brain. In this way Torleva prevents from the seizures.
