Fycompa Indication

Fycompa (Perampanel) belongs to the class of medications called anti-epileptic agents. It is used in combination with other medications to treat partial-onset seizures for people aged 7 years and older. It is also used in combination with other medications to treat primary-generalized tonic-clonic seizures for people aged 12 years and older. It is not clear exactly how Fycompa (Perampanel) works to help reduce seizures.

Fycompa (Perampanel) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Fycompa (Perampanel) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Fycompa (Perampanel) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Fycompa (Perampanel) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Fycompa (Perampanel), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Fycompa (Perampanel) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Fycompa (Perampanel) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Fycompa (Perampanel) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Fycompa Dosage

The most appropriate dose of Fycompa (Perampanel) is one that provides good control of seizures without causing side effects that are too severe.

The recommended starting dose for adults and children is 2 mg or 4 mg once daily at bedtime, depending on whether you are taking certain anti-epileptic medications, including Phenytoin, Carbamazepine, or oxcarbamazepine. The dose of Fycompa (Perampanel) can be gradually increased to a maximum dose of 12 mg per day until satisfactory seizure control is seen or side effects become intolerable.

Fycompa (Perampanel) tablets may be taken with food or on an empty stomach. Fycompa (Perampanel) suspension should be taken without food for the first 2 weeks when you start taking the suspension or if you have switched from tablets to the suspension.

If you are using Fycompa (Perampanel) suspension, shake the medication bottle for at least 5 seconds before measuring the dose of medication. An oral syringe should be used to measure each dose of the liquid, as it provides a more accurate measurement than household teaspoons.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Fycompa (Perampanel) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. Contact your doctor if you miss more than one day of medication.

Store Fycompa (Perampanel) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. The suspension should be used within 90 days after opening the bottle.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
