What If I Take an Overdose?

People who take too much Zonegran may have overdose symptoms that could include:
  • Slow heart rate (bradycardia)
  • Low blood pressure (hypotension)
  • Difficulty breathing.
If you happen to take too much, seek immediate medical attention.

How Should Zonegran Be Stored?

Zonegran should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Store the capsules in an airtight container.
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Zonegran as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. If you miss several doses, talk with your healthcare provider, as you may need to start back with a lower dosage.

Alternatives to Zonegran

Several alternatives to Zonegran are available for treating epilepsy. This can include other seizure medications (see Epilepsy Medication), surgery (see Epilepsy Surgery), or, in some cases, even a special diet (see Epilepsy Diet).
While this medication is often effective and well tolerated, it does not work for everyone. It may also cause side effects. With so many different treatment options for epilepsy available, people should not settle for a treatment that is not effective enough for them or that causes bothersome side effects.
