Gardenal 20 MG Description

Gardenal Syrup is an anticonvulsant (agents used in the treatment of epileptic seizures). It is a medicine used to manage and prevent seizures (epilepsy) and anxiety. Gardenal Syrup reduces excessi

ve brain activity, making you sleepy or dizzy. The medicine may allow you to conduct activities that you might otherwise be unable to perform (such as swimming and driving). This medicine may take a few weeks to show its effects because the dose is gradually increased, and a patient may still have seizures during that time. Even if you get better, do not stop the medicine abruptly. Wait until your doctor tells you to stop taking this medication. Missed doses may result in a fit attack.
