What is primidone?
Primidone is an anticonvulsant drug that helps people with seizures. Primidone can be used for a variety of other things that aren’t covered in this drug guide.
While taking primidone, some people get suicidal thoughts. Keep a close eye on any changes in your mood or symptoms. Any new or worsening symptoms should be reported to your doctor. Even if you feel fine, do not abruptly stop taking primidone. Stopping abruptly may result in a rise in seizures.
How should I take primidone?
Read all drug guides or instruction sheets and follow all guidelines on your prescription label. Your doctor may adjust your dose from time to time. Follow the medication’s instructions to the letter.
If you’re switching from another seizure medication to primidone, you may need to start taking it exclusively at night. Pay attention to your doctor’s directions.
