Peganone Medication Information

People who have grand mal seizures or complex partial seizures may receive a prescription drug called Peganone® (ethotoin). However, before taking this medication, your healthcare provider needs information on your medical history and a current list of all medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking.
 
While this drug may help control seizures in some people, it is not appropriate for everyone. People with anemia, liver disease, or blood disorders may not be able to safely use Peganone. Also, it may react with a few medications, as well as antacids that contain calcium.
 
Peganone comes as a tablet that is taken four to six times daily. It is important to take each dose after eating. Although most people tolerate this drug well, side effects may occur and can include nausea, vomiting, and insomnia.
