Felbamate Drug Information

If you have severe epilepsy, your healthcare provider may prescribe felbamate (Felbatol®). This prescription medication is specifically approved for use in adults who have partial seizures and in children who have Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
 
Felbamate comes in the form of a tablet or liquid, and is generally taken three or four times a day. Headaches, constipation, and insomnia are some of the possible side effects of this drug.
 
It's important to review felbamate's safety information with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. This drug may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have any other medical conditions (such as kidney problems, liver disease, blood disorders, or any allergies) or if you are taking any other types of medicines, including nonprescription products.
