Active Ingredient History
Rufinamide is an anti-epileptic drug that is FDA approved for the treatment of lennox-gastaut syndrome (LGS). The principal mechanism of action of rufinamide is modulation of the activity of sodium channels and, in particular, prolongation of the inactive state of the channel. Hormonal contraceptives may be less effective with rufinamide. Patients on valproate should begin at a rufinamide dose lower than 10 mg/kg per day (pediatric patients) or 400 mg per day (adults). Common adverse reactions include headache, dizziness, fatigue, somnolence, and nausea. NCATS
