About SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET

SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET belongs to the class of anticonvulsants, which is primarily used to treat focal (partial) seizures in adults and children four years of age or older. Focal or partial-onset seizures are characterized by abnormal electrical activity in only one brain hemisphere.

SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET contains lacosamide, which treats seizures by decreasing disorganized electrical activity in the brain.

It is given as monotherapy or in combination with other antiepileptic drugs. SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET should be taken in the dose and duration your doctor advises. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects of SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET: nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, headache, confusion, dizziness, uncontrolled movements of the eye, blurred vision, double vision (diplopia), mood disturbances, itching, tremors, fatigue, and trouble walking. Consult your doctor if the side effects persist or worsen over time. Some people may also experience suicidal thoughts. Seek medical attention immediately in such cases.

Don’t stop taking SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET even if your condition is controlled, as abrupt stopping may cause the recurrence of the seizures. Before taking SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET, inform your doctor if you are allergic to lacosamide or other ingredients. Inform your doctor if using other antiepileptics, prescription or non-prescription drugs, nutritional supplements, or herbal products. Inform your doctor if you are diagnosed with depression, severe renal impairment, arrhythmias (atrioventricular block, atrial fibrillation, and atrial flutter), severe heart failure, or a heart attack.

Medicinal Benefits

SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET is an antiepileptic drug, also called anticonvulsants. It treats focal seizures in adults and children above four years of age. Seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. SEIZLAC 50MG TABLET can inactivate the sodium channels across the neuron membranes. This inactivation decreases neuron signals, thereby decreasing the electrical disturbance or abnormal activity in the brain.
