Potiga Uses

How Does This Medicine Work?

Seizures are the result of brief changes in how the brain's electrical system works. It is not known exactly how Potiga works for treating seizures. Studies suggest that it may work by affecting potassium channels in the brain (helping them to stay in the "open" position), preventing the abnormal activity from "firing" and spreading to other parts of the brain. This action helps to control seizures.

Is Potiga Safe for Use in Children or Teens?

This medication is approved for use in people age 18 years old and older. It is not approved for younger adolescents and children, as it has not been adequately studied in these age groups. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using Potiga in children.

Off-Label Uses for Potiga

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medicine for something other than the treatment of partial-onset seizures. This is called an "off-label" use. Using Potiga for treating other types of seizures or using it alone, without combining it with other seizure medications, would be considered off-label uses.
