Potiga Medication Information
If you have partial-onset seizures (also known as partial seizures or focal seizures), your healthcare provider may prescribe PotigaTM (ezogabine). This medicine is only approved for use in adults and must be used in combination with other seizure medications.
Potiga comes in the form of a tablet that is taken three times a day. It is thought to work by opening up potassium channels in the brain. This helps control seizures by preventing abnormal electrical activity from spreading to other parts of the brain.
Before starting treatment with Potiga, make sure to review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. Although this can be an effective seizure medicine, it may not be suitable for people who have certain allergies, depression, or heart problems. Also, this drug may react with certain other medications.
