About Zeptol CR 400

The anticonvulsant is utilized to prevent and treat Seizures.

It includes the active ingredient Carbamazepine.

It is a prescription-only medication that cannot be purchased over the counter.

Sun Pharma Laboratories manufactures this product.

Zeptol CR 400 Uses 

The medication Zeptol CR 400 is an anticonvulsant or an anti-epileptic.

In addition, it is used to treat certain types of nerve pain (such as Trigeminal Neuralgia).

Its active ingredient, Carbamazepine, is also used to treat Bipolar Disorder.

This medication diminishes the spread of epileptic activity in the brain and restores the balance of normal neuronal function.

Working of Zeptol CR 400

Zeptol CR 400's active ingredient, Carbamazepine, is an anticonvulsant or anti-epileptic treatment.

It acts by stabilizing the electrical activity of the brain and nerves.

Epilepsy is treated with Carbamazepine, which prevents the buildup of electrical signals in the brain's nerve cells.

Additionally, it suppresses the neurotransmitter Glutamate release.

Too much Glutamate might cause Seizures.

Additionally, Zeptol reduces nerve pain by regulating the nerves' electrical signals.

This inhibits pain impulses from reaching the brain.

Zeptol CR 400 Dosage

Consume the medication with a full glass of water.

If you have Epilepsy or Bipolar Disorder, you will likely continue to take Carbamazepine for several years after your condition is under control.

If you experience nerve pain, you must take Carbamazepine for several months after the pain resolves to avoid a recurrence.

If you forget to take medicine, take the missed dose as soon as you remember.

If the next dose is almost due, you may skip this one.

Do not take two doses simultaneously to make up for a missing dosage.

If you have Epilepsy, you must continuously take this medication.

Inadequate dosing may result in Seizures.

You may get seizures when you stop taking the medicine for Epilepsy.

One can avoid these withdrawal seizures by gradually reducing one's Carbamazepine dosage.
