INTAS LABORATORIES LTD
LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET belongs to a group of anticonvulsants or anti-epileptics used to treat epilepsy/seizures/fits. Additionally, LAMEZ OD 150MG 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 OD 150MG TABLET contains 'Lamotrigine' that reduces the electrical impulses and subsequent firing of the nerve impulses that cause fits. Thus, LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET decreases the excessive and abnormal nerve activity in the brain, thereby controlling seizures.
You are advised to take LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition.

Epilepsy (fits), and Bipolar disorder.
LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET belongs to a group of anticonvulsants or anti-epileptics used to treat epilepsy and bipolar disorders. LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET contains Lamotrigine, which reduces the electrical impulses and subsequent firing of the nerve impulses that cause fits. LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET decreases the excessive and abnormal nerve activity in the brain, thereby helping in controlling seizures. It also suppresses the release of excitatory amino acid glutamate (a chemical messenger that acts as a nerve-exciting agent) in the brain, thereby preventing episodes of fits by stabilizing nerve cell's electrical activity in the brain. LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET widely used in pediatric epilepsy because of its acceptable safety profile. LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET is not associated with any psychological or physical dependence, and there is no potential for abuse.

Epilepsy: It is a brain-related problem in which there is a sudden rush of electricity in the brain. This sudden, uncontrolled disturbance in nerve cell's electrical activity in the brain results in recurrent seizures (fits), sometimes leading to the unconscious state. In patients with seizures, the typical brain electrical pattern is disrupted by sudden bursts of electrical impulses that affect an individual's consciousness, movements, or sensations. Seizures are of two types: generalized and partial seizures. Generalized seizures affect the entire brain, whereas partial seizures affect only a part of the brain. Seizures can cause uncontrollable muscle twitches and spasms. Stronger seizures may cause people to become confused or unconscious. Possible causes include high fever, trauma, genetic disorder, brain injury, or stroke.
Bipolar disorder: Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression or bipolar disease, is a mental health disorder associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from manic highs to depressive lows.
LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET decreases the excessive and abnormal nerve activity in the brain. It balances the brain's chemical messenger and prevents overactivity of the brain, thereby controlling seizure episodes.
Do not discontinue LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET without consulting your doctor. To treat your condition effectually, continue taking LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET for as long as prescribed. Do not be reluctant to speak with your doctor if you feel any difficulty while taking LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET, your doctor will reduce the dose gradually to avoid worsening of seizures.
LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET may cause weight gain due to an increase in appetite. Maintain a healthy weight by following a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
Dry mouth could be a side-effect of LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET. Limiting caffeine intake, avoiding smoking and mouthwashes containing alcohol, drinking water regularly, and chewing sugar-free gum/candy might stimulate saliva and prevent drying of the mouth.
LAMEZ OD 150MG TABLET helps to treat manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder by increasing the amount of a chemical substance called GABA, this helps in blocking the nerve transmission across the brain and provides a calming effect.
