  • Ethosuximide Uses

    Ethosuximide is a drug used in the treatment of petit mal seizures. This type of seizure is also known as absence seizure, not least because the duration of the seizure lasts less than 30 seconds, on average. Typically, the patient, who usually experiences their first such seizure during childhood, stares into space, or may roll their eyes back. Ethosuximide is used because it specifically blocks the T-type calcium channels in the brain, something that many other anticonvulsant drugs fail to do. Ethosuximide may also be used for purposes not listed in this guide, at the discretion of the prescriber.

    • Absence Seizures

  • Ethosuximide Dosage

    Ethosuximide, as with any other medicine, does not follow any fixed dose. There are, of course, recommended dosage regimens, but these regimens have exceptions. Patients may present with complicating factors such as age, co-administration of other medicines, and the presence of disease. Dosage may change at the discretion of the prescriber.

    • 500mg (10mL) to be administered daily. For patients between 3 and 6 years of age, the dose is halved to 250mg (5mL) to be administered daily.
