Even though they may look very different, all seizures start in the same place, i.e., brain. They are caused by sudden changes in the way brain cells send electrical signals back and forth(detected as abnormal EEG discharges).
But just because they start in the same place does not mean they can be treated in the same way. The doctor will want to obtain an accurate diagnosis of the exact type of epilepsy
that you have Only then can the doctor create the treatment plan that is right for her.
Today, most seizures are treated with medication.Drugs do not cure epilepsy, but they can often control seizures very well. About 80% of people with epilepsy today have their seizures controlled by medication at least some of the time.
Of course, that means that 20% of people with epilepsy are not helped by medication too. And others who do take medication say that it doesn't help enough. Her doctor will work with her to select the right kind of medication for her type of seizures.
If you find that the medication does not control her seizours, her doctor can consider about other treatment options. Oxetol tablet acts as an anticonvulsant, and helps treat particular seizures in individuals who suffer from epilepsy.
The doctor may either prescribe only this drug, or prescribe it with other drugs. Oxetol tablet slows down abnormal brain nerve impulses, thus treating seizures. The medication is meant for oral consumption and can be taken before or after a meal.
The dosage should be taken on time and at regular intervals. Suddenly discontinuing the drug can lead to an onset of seizures. Thus, Oxetol 450 tablet should be gradually stopped if the need arises.
The drug can lead to certain side effects which include...dizziness
, sleepiness, nausea, vomiting
, eye problems, such as double vision
, blurred vision
, or cataracts
, tremors, problems with walking and coordination (unsteadiness).
Overdose symptoms can include dizziness, sedation, decreased heart rate
, low blood pressure, low sodium levels, seizures, and coma.
