Eslibon® contains the active ingredient eslicarbazepine acetate, which belongs to a group of medicines called antiepileptics. These are used to treat epilepsy, a condition in which you have repeated convulsions or seizures.
Eslibon® is used:
- alone, without other medicines for epilepsy (monotherapy) to treat adults with newly diagnosed epilepsy.
- as an add-on treatment to other medicines for epilepsy in adults, adolescents and children over 6 years of age who suffer from seizures that affect a part of the brain (partial seizures). These seizures may or may not be followed by seizures that affect the entire brain (secondary generalization).
Eslibon® is given by the doctor to reduce the number of seizures.
