How Does Banzel Work?Seizures are the result of brief changes in how the brain's electrical system works. It is not known exactly how Banzel works for treating seizures. Studies suggest that it may work by affecting sodium channels in the brain, preventing the abnormal activity from spreading to other parts. In particular, this medication seems to keep the sodium channels in an inactive state for a longer period of time, which helps control seizures.
Banzel Use in Children or Teens
Banzel is approved for use in children as young as four years old. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using the drug in children. Banzel tablets can be split in half or crushed, if necessary. However, Banzel is also available as an oral suspension (liquid), which may be helpful for young children who have difficulty swallowing tablets.
