Fycompa is an epilepsy medicine for treating:
- partial seizures (fits starting in one specific part of the brain), including those followed by generalised seizures affecting all of the brain, in patients from 4 years of age;
- primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures (major fits fit affecting most or all of the brain) in patients from 7 years of age when the cause of epilepsy is unknown.
Fycompa must only be used as an ‘add-on’ therapy to other anti-epileptic medicines. It contains the active substance perampanel.
