About Dayo OD 250mg Tablet 10's

Dayo OD 250mg Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines called anticonvulsants or anti-epileptics used to treat epilepsy/seizures/fits. Additionally, Dayo OD 250mg Tablet 10's is also used to treat manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder and prevent migraine. Epilepsy is a sudden rush of electricity in the brain. In epilepsy the brain's electrical rhythms become imbalanced, resulting in recurrent seizures.

The Dayo OD 250mg Tablet 10's contains 'Divalproex sodium', which decreases the brain's excessive and abnormal nerve activity. Thereby helps in controlling seizures. Dayo OD 250mg Tablet 10's increases the amount of a chemical substance called GABA, this helps block the nerve transmission across the brain and provides a calming effect. Thereby helps treat bipolar disorder.
