Epilim Chrono CR Description

Your doctor may prescribe Epilim Chrono CR to treat seizures due to epilepsy. This is a controlled-release drug that contains Sodium Valproate and Valproic Acid that work together to help prevent seizures from occurring. A seizure is described as a brief disruption in normal brain activity that interrupts brain function. Although Epilim Chrono CR is not a cure for epilepsy, it is effective for preventing the seizures that can accompany this brain disorder that can start at any age.

How These 2 Active Ingredients Work on Your Neurotransmitters

Sodium Valproate increases the production of one of the neurotransmitters in your brain called Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and prevents its break-down. The result is a calming effect on the electrical nerve activity in your brain. Valproic Acid is chemically related to Sodium Valproate and is believed to assist with maintaining a balance of the nerve activity to prevent a seizure from occurring.

Conditions Treated by Epilim Chrono CR

There are a number of causes for epilepsy, including an injury or damage to the brain, a structural abnormality, genetics, or a combination of any of these. Usually, the neurons in your brain produce electrochemical impulses that generate your thoughts, emotions, and actions. Epilepsy disturbs this normal pattern of neuronal activity and can result in the neurons firing more than twice as many times as it usually does and you have a seizure that causes your muscles to contract, visual disturbances, or you could blackout.

Injuries due to falls are possible during seizures. Many people take precautions by removing or padding the corners of sharp-edged furniture and blocking access to stairways to decrease the risk of injuries. Children may miss out of many activities for fear of an injury should they experience a seizure so some parents resort to having the child wear a bike helmet for protection.

Before Epilim Chrono CR is Prescribed

Your doctor may recommend taking a pregnancy test to confirm whether you are pregnant or not and advised to use a reliable birth control method during treatment with Epilim Chrono CR to avoid possible harm to an unborn baby. To determine if Epilim Chrono CR is right for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and mention any Rx drugs and non-prescription medications you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Epilim Chrono CR Precautions

Inform your doctor and dentist that you are taking Epilim Chrono CR if you are scheduled to undergo any surgical procedures with a general anesthetic so you can be instructed on when to take your medication. Do not stop taking Epilim Chrono CR or change your dosage without first talking to your doctor as this could initiate a seizure. All medications should be stored out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
