Oxcarbazepine is used to treat epilepsy.
Oxcarbazepine: Anticonvulsants or Antiepileptics
Oxcarbazepine works by suppressing high frequency repeated neuronal activity via binding to sodium channels. Oxcarbazepine also suppresses the release of glutamate which is a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger), thereby minimizing the electrical activity in the brain.
