Overview

Lacosamide UCB is an epilepsy medicine used to treat partial-onset seizures (epileptic fits starting in one specific part of the brain) in patients with epilepsy aged 4 years or older. It can be used to treat partial-onset seizures with or without secondary generalisation (where the seizure subsequently spreads to other parts of the brain).

Lacosamide UCB is given on its own or combined with other medicines for epilepsy. It contains the active substance lacosamide.

This medicine is the same as Vimpat, which is already authorised in the EU. The company that makes Vimpat has agreed that its scientific data can be used for Lacosamide UCB (‘informed consent’).
