INTRODUCTION

BRIVGARD 50MG contains Brivaracetam which belongs to a group of medicines called anti-epileptics. It is used to treat partial seizures. Epilepsy is a condition due to sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain which causes changes in behavior, movements or feelings and levels of consciousness and partial seizures are seizures which affects one side of the brain which spreads and extend to larger areas on both sides of the brain which is called a secondary generalisation.

This medicine is used to treat a type of epilepsy that has partial seizures with or without a secondary generalisation. It is used to lower the number of fits (seizures) and also used together with other medicines for epilepsy.
