Everet general information

What is Everet used for?

Everet tablets 250mg are used to treat epilepsy in adults and children.  Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that is characterized by seizures or fits of various different types that can range from mild to severe.  Everet tablets 250mg are used as add-on therapy to prevent seizures due to partial epilepsy, in which the area of the brain involved in a seizure is localised.  A local seizure may spread to become a generalised seizure, in which other parts of the brain are involved in the seizure.  A generalised seizure covers a range of different types, including absences (formally known as petit mal), various forms of myoclonic epilepsy and tonic-clonic (formally known as grand mal) seizures.  Everet 250 is also used alone as monotherapy for treatment of partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalisation. 

How does Everet work?

Everet tablets 250mg contain levetiracetam, which is an anticonvulsant used to prevent seizures in epilepsy.  Epileptic seizures are triggered by episodes of abnormal electrical activity in the brain, in which a malfunction in the transmission of electrical signals causes repetitive firing and transmission of excitatory nerve messages.  Transmission of electrical signals is controlled by brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, and for the brain to function normally it is important to have a balance between excitatory neurotransmitters and those that have a calming effect on nerve cells.  Levetiracetam in Everet tablets 250mg does not appear to work in the same way as other anti-epileptics as it does not act as a nerve cell membrane stabiliser to alter basic cell characteristics and normal neurotransmission.  Levetiracetam in Everet tablets 250mg binds to a protein inside nerve cells (neurones) called synaptic vesicle glycoprotein SV2A.  This protein is thought to be involved in the formation, fusion with the cell membrane, and release of vesicles, a process known as exocytosis, which is how neurotransmitters are released from the pre-synaptic neurone into the synapse (gap) between neurones.  Everet in Levetiracetam 250 also inhibits the voltage-dependent calcium channels in the post-synaptic neurones, which reduces the post-synaptic firing (nerve cell action potential) resulting in reduced transmission of excitatory nerve messages.  These mechanisms of action inhibit the repetitive firing and transmission of excitatory nerve messages, which reduces the impulses that cause seizures and contribute to the anticonvulsant effects of Everet tablets 250mg.
