Vigabatrin is a medication used to treat epilepsy, a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. It works by increasing levels of a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain, which helps to reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. Vigabatrin is commonly prescribed for the treatment of certain types of seizures, including complex partial seizures and infantile spasms. It is typically taken orally in the form of tablets or powder for oral solution. Common side effects of vigabatrin may include drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue, and weight gain. In some cases, vigabatrin may cause more serious side effects, such as vision changes or mood changes, and it may increase the risk of certain eye disorders. It’s important to use vigabatrin as directed by a healthcare provider and to report any side effects or concerns to a doctor promptly.
