About Valex Er 250mg Tablet 10's

Valex Er 250mg Tablet 10's belongs to a class of drugs called anti-epileptics also known as an anticonvulsant medication. It is used to treat neurological conditions. It is used for the treatment of manic episodes in bipolar disorder, complex partial seizures, simple and complex absence seizures, and other types of seizures that include absence seizures. It is used as prophylaxis for migraines. Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that affects your moods, which can swing from one extreme to another. It used to be known as manic depression. A seizure is a sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain. It can cause changes in your behaviour, movements or feelings, and in levels of consciousness.

Valex Er 250mg Tablet 10's is available for oral use in the form of tablets. Swallow the tablets as a whole. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablets. The dose and duration of the treatment are given by your doctor. The doctor may increase or decrease the dose gradually depending on your health condition. It is given as monotherapy or adjunctive therapy to treat seizures. Valex Er 250mg Tablet 10's works by reducing or prevent manic episodes by increasing the amount of a chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA blocks transmission across nerves in the brain and has a calming effect.
