What are Topina tablets 100 mg for epilepsy (topiramate)?


Topina tablets encompass topiramate, which is a modified sulfamate glucose diacetonide. It is sold under the brand names Topamax, Trokendi XR or Qudexy XR.  this medication curbs excessive neural activity in the brain and mitigates partial epileptic seizures. Research indicates that topiramate effectively restrains maximal electroshock and pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures, along with secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizures in the kindling model.

Topina tablets prove suitable for both children and adults. Notably, topiramate stands apart from other antiepileptic drugs like levetiracetam or carbamazepine by not inducing cell death in juvenile animals. Nonetheless, for optimal efficacy, your healthcare provider might prescribe complementary antiepileptic agents alongside topiramate.
