What is Primidone Mysoline?

What is Primidone Mysoline? The Mysoline dose is used alone or with other medications to control seizures. Controlling and reducing seizures lets you do more of your normal daily activities, reduces your risk of harm when you lose consciousness, and lessens your risk for a possibly life-threatening condition of frequent, repeated seizures. Primidone belongs to a class of drugs known as barbiturate anticonvulsants. It works by controlling the abnormal electrical activity in the brain that occurs during a seizure. Side effects of Primidone medication can be based on your medical condition.

How to use

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using primidone and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions or you want to know more about what is Primidone Mysoline? ask your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Take The Mysoline¬†dose by mouth with or without food.
  • Usually, 3-4 times daily or as directed by your doctor.
  • Take with food or milk if stomach upset occurs.
  • Your doctor may direct you to start this medication at a low dose at bedtime and gradually increase your dose to prevent side effects such as drowsiness and dizziness.

If you are changing from a different anticonvulsant to primidone, your doctor may direct you to continue your old medication and slowly lower the dose as you begin taking primidone. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully.

Dosage and treatment

The Mysoline dose is based on your medical condition, blood levels of primidone, use of other medications to treat seizures, and response to treatment. It may take several weeks to reach the best dose for you.

This medication works best when the amount of drug in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Do not stop taking this medication (and other anticonvulsant medications) without consulting your doctor. Your seizures may worsen or cause a very severe seizure that is difficult to treat (status epilepticus) when this drug is suddenly stopped.

If you suddenly stop using The Mysoline dose, you may have withdrawal symptoms (such as anxiety, hallucinations, twitching, trouble sleeping). Withdrawal from primidone can be severe and include seizures and (rarely) death. To help prevent withdrawal, your doctor may lower your dose slowly. Withdrawal is more likely if you have used primidone for a long time or in high doses. Tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if you have withdrawal.
