Intas Pharmaceuticals Ltd
LAMEZ 100MG TABLET belongs to a group of anticonvulsants or anti-epileptics used to treat epilepsy/seizures/fits. Additionally, LAMEZ 100MG TABLET also treats bipolar disorder. Epilepsy is a sudden rush of electricity in the brain. In epilepsy, the brain's electrical rhythms become imbalanced, resulting in recurrent seizures, sometimes leading to the unconscious state. Bipolar disorder is a severe brain disorder in which a person experiences extreme mood swings (variance in thinking) and frequent mood and behavioral changes.
LAMEZ 100MG TABLET contains 'Lamotrigine' that reduces the electrical impulses and subsequent firing of the nerve impulses that cause fits. Thus, LAMEZ 100MG TABLET decreases the excessive and abnormal nerve activity in the brain, thereby controlling seizures.
