FYCOMPA is thought to work in a different way. It is the first and only seizure medication that targets the AMPA receptor.

FYCOMPA is thought to block the excitatory signals in the brain. As with many other seizure medications, the way FYCOMPA works is not fully understood.

  • 1. AMPA receptors help send and receive signals on nerve cells.
  • 2. FYCOMPA attaches to AMPA receptors.
  • 3. This blocks the action of a chemical, glutamate, that carries signals between nerve cells.
