Eptoin 100 MG Description

Eptoin tablet is used to treat and prevent seizures in emergency situations where the seizures persist for a prolonged duration and do not subside. It is also employed to prevent seizures, commonly referred to as fits, during surgical procedures involving the brain. Eptoin contains phenytoin, which reduces abnormal electrical activity in the brain. This modulation of electrical signals helps control and manage seizures, providing relief to individuals experiencing these episodes.

Inform the doctor about all the medicines you are taking and also if you have any heart-related disorders or blockage in the heart, etc. Follow-up with your doctor is necessary once you complete your course. Also, you should inform your doctor if you have a planned surgery or vaccination scheduled, before starting Eptoin tablet.
