About Zefretol 800 Tablet 10's

Zefretol 800 Tablet 10's belongs to the class of medications called ‘antiepileptic drugs’ used to treat epilepsy (fits). Epilepsy is a sudden rush of electricity in the brain. In epilepsy the brain's electrical rhythms become imbalanced, resulting in recurrent seizures. It can cause changes in your behaviour, movements or feelings and levels of consciousness.

Zefretol 800 Tablet 10's contains ‘Eslicarbazepine acetate’ which is used to treat epilepsy or seizures. It inactivates certain channels in the brain that passes electronic signals. This effect helps to decrease abnormal activity or electrical disturbance in the brain, thereby preventing epilepsy episodes. It reduces the frequency and number of seizure episodes.
