Zeptol CR Tablet contains Carbamazepine as the active ingredient which is an antiepileptic medication. Carbamazepine is an anticonvulsant and mood-stabilizing drug used primarily in the treatment of epilepsy and bipolar disorder as well as trigeminal neuralgia.
Carbamazepine depresses activity in the nucleus ventralis of the thalamus, reduces synaptic propagation of excitatory impulses or decreases summation of temporal stimulation leading to neural discharge by limiting influx of Na ions across cell membrane or other unknown mechanisms. It stimulates the release of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) and potentiates its action in promoting reabsorption of water.
It is prescribed to treat Seizure, neuropathic pain, bipolar disorder.
