START FYCOMPA LIQUID OR TABLET

Depending on what type of seizures you are experiencing, FYCOMPA can be taken alone or with other medicines. Your doctor will first start you on a low dose. Then, your doctor will slowly increase your dose to be sure you get the amount of FYCOMPA that's right for you. Your dose could be increased as slowly as every 2 to 4 weeks, but no more than once a week, depending on how FYCOMPA works for you.

TAKE FYCOMPA AT BEDTIME

TAKE FYCOMPA AT BEDTIME

You should take FYCOMPA every night at bedtime, whenever that may be. Sometimes life can get hectic so your bedtime may be different from night to night and that's OK. It won't change the way FYCOMPA works.

  • FYCOMPA tablets should be swallowed whole

  • Please see the Medication Guide for detailed instructions on dosing

MONITOR FOR  ANY REACTIONS

MONITOR FOR ANY REACTIONS

If you notice any reactions to FYCOMPA, it's important to let your doctor know right away. Your doctor may lower or discontinue your dose depending on how you react to FYCOMPA.

  • Do not change your dose without first talking to your doctor

  • If you take more FYCOMPA than you are supposed to, call your local Poison Control Center or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away

FYCOMPA has a long half-life

Half-life describes how long a medicine stays in your body. Half-life is important in epilepsy treatment because medicines with longer half-lives stay in your body at steadier levels for a longer time even in the event you miss a dose. Talk to your doctor if you miss one or more of your doses or if you have questions about what a long half-life means to you. Remember to always take your medication as prescribed by your doctor.
