Vimpat (generic name: lacosamide) is an anticonvulsant and, thus, an anti-epileptic drug.
Here’s a list of Vimpat prices:
Dr. Shridhar Andurkar and Dr. Harold Kohn, who were then at the University of Houston, developed lacosamide. Union Chimique Belge (UCB) developed as Vimpat, its trade name.
Lacosamide was also known as harkeroside, erlosamide, ADD 234037, or SPM.
Vimpact is an anticonvulsant compound used as an adjunct medication in a wholistic treatment of partial-onset seizures in people diagnosed with epilepsy. It can only be administered for people who are at least 17 years old for safety purposes.
The drug can also be used as an adjunct treatment for neuropathic pain.
Be sure to take Vimpat according to your doctor’s prescribed dosage. When taken outside of the recommended dosage, such as in higher or lower amount and for longer or shorter duration, the desired effects will likely not be achieved.
You can take the medication with or without food depending on your preference. Use a medicine cup or a dose-measuring spoon to get the right dosage.
Never suddenly stop using the drug regardless of your physical experience (i.e., feeling fine already). Otherwise, you can experience increased frequency and intensity of seizures. You must coordinate with your doctor when tapering your dose.
Tell your doctor in case of worsening symptoms or when your seizures are increasing in frequency while taking the drug. Wear your medical ID card so that others can be aware of your condition.
Store Vimpat at room temperature away from sources of heat and moisture. Don’t place it in a refrigerator and freezer, especially the liquid form.
