What is Briviact?
Briviact contains the prescription medicine brivaracetam. Brivaracetam is an anti-epileptic drug used for the treatment of partial-onset seizures for adults and children, 4 years of age or older. Briviact injection is only recommended for the treatment of patients 16 years or older. It may be used alone or in combination with other medications.
Partial-onset seizures are caused when abnormal electrical activity starts in one part of the brain only. Symptoms of partial-onset seizures are typically muscle tightening, unusual head movements, eyes moving side to side or blank stares, tingling, numbness, hallucinations, and the sensation of ants crawling over your skin.
Briviact active ingredients
Briviact is classed as a SV2A ligand. SV2A is a protein found in synaptic vesicles. Synaptic vesicles are needed for nerve impulses to be passed between neurons. Ligands are defined as signaling molecules as sometimes when they combine with other molecules a signal is created. It has been seen that brivaracetam is highly attracted to the synaptic vesicle protein 2A(SV2A), this is thought to contribute to the anticonvulsant effect it has. However, the exact way in which Briviact works is not fully understood.
Briviact side effects
The most common side effects caused by Briviact include:
- Tiredness, drowsiness, or dizziness
- Nausea, vomiting
