Description

Lamictal 25mg tablet 30’s

Lamictal 25mg tablet 30’s Dispersible Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called anti-epileptics. It is used to treat two conditions, epilepsy and bipolar disorder. It works by blocking the signals in the brain that trigger epileptic seizures (fits) and in another way to prevent extreme mood swings.

Lamotrigine is used alone or with other medications to prevent and control seizures. It may also be used to help prevent the extreme mood swings of bipolar disorder in adults. Lamotrigine is known as an anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drug.

Lamotrigine is usually taken 1 or 2 times daily with or without food. Typically patients begin at a low dose of medicine and the dose is increased slowly over several weeks. The dose usually ranges from 25 mg to 400 mg. Only your health care provider can determine the correct dose for you.
Once at steady state, a serum lamotrigine level draw is recommended at 12 hours postdose, or as a predose trough. In clinical practice, lamotrigine levels are rarely obtained.
The main mechanism by which lamotrigine emerged as a well-established anticonvulsant is due to the inhibition of neuronal hyperexcitability and modification of synaptic plasticity via voltage-dependant inhibition of neuronal voltage-activated Sodium channels and possible high voltage-activated Calcium channels.
Discontinuing carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, primidone, or other drugs such as rifampin and the protease inhibitors lopinavir/ritonavir and atazanavir/ritonavir that induce lamotrigine glucuronidation should prolong the half-life of lamotrigine
