About DIPROEX ER 750MG TABLET

DIPROEX ER 750MG TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called anticonvulsants or anti-epileptics used to treat epilepsy/seizures/fits. Additionally, DIPROEX ER 750MG TABLET 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 DIPROEX ER 750MG TABLET contains 'Divalproex sodium', which decreases the brain's excessive and abnormal nerve activity. Thereby helps in controlling seizures. DIPROEX ER 750MG TABLET 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.
