Zonegran Drug Information

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has prescribed Zonegran® (zonisamide) for the treatment of certain kinds of seizures, called partial seizures; these occur in just one part of the brain. Although the medication's effects aren't entirely understood, it may work by stopping seizure activity and preventing it from spreading.
 
Zonegran comes in capsule form and is taken by mouth once or twice a day. Usually, you will start with a low dosage and slowly increase up to an effective one. Inform your healthcare provider right away if you have any problems with this medicine or if anything "just does not seem right." Side effects to watch out for with this medication include nausea, irritability, and loss of appetite.
