Ezogabine Drug Information
Ezogabine (PotigaTM) is a medication prescribed to control partial-onset seizures (also called partial seizures or focal seizures) in adults. It is used in combination with other seizure medicines and is thought to work by preventing abnormal electrical activity from spreading to other parts of the brain.
Ezogabine comes in tablet form and is usually taken three times a day. Possible side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness, and confusion.
Although it is generally well tolerated, this drug is not suitable for everyone. Before taking ezogabine, make sure your healthcare provider has current information on your medical history and a list of any medications, vitamins, or supplements you are taking. Also, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have any allergies or medical conditions, such as heart problems or a history of suicidal thoughts or behaviors.
