A Look at Preventing Seizures with Mysoline Primidone
Although research has yet to reveal exactly how the Primidone in the prescription medication Mysoline acts to prevent epileptic seizures, the general consensus is that it reduces the effect of the “excitability” neurotransmitters which can cause the brain to send electrical impulses at a highly accelerated rate. Too many electrical impulses in the brain can overload the rest of the body’s systems, leading to the convulsions, rigidity, and erratic behaviors associated with grand mal and partial epileptic seizures.
Listen to Your Doctor
If your doctor prescribes Mysoline as a treatment for your epileptic seizures, you need to keep taking it until he or she tells you it’s okay to stop. Only by continuing to take Mysoline will you prevent future seizures, but because Mysoline can sometimes cause dizziness, you should be careful about driving or performing any other activities which require you to remain alert while you are on Mysoline.
