Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Ethinamate was used to treat insomnia (trouble in sleeping) under the brand name VALMID, but then was replaced by other more efficacy medicines. The mechanism of action was not known. However, was studies, which showed that ethinamate inhibits carbonic anhydrases I and did not inhibit II. Nevertheless, even inhibition carbonic anhydrases I is not sufficiently strong to implicate carbonic anhydrases I in the mechanism of action.   NCATS
