Fycompa 4mg (Perampanel) - 4mg (2 x 14 Tablets)


Fycompa 4mg (Perampanel) is an antiepileptic medicine and it improves psychomotor function. Perampanel is the first in its class selective non-competitive antagonist of ionotropic α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate- (AMPA) glutamate receptors on postsynaptic neurons.

Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, which plays an important role in the pathogenesis of a number of neurological diseases caused by overexcitation of neurons.

Glutamate activation of AMPA receptors is thought to be responsible for the fastest excitatory synaptic transmission in the brain.
