Contain the active ingredient : Lamotrigine which is an anticonvulsant medicine that's prescribed to help prevent seizures in people who suffer from epilepsy. It's also used as a mood stabiliser in bipolar disorder, sometimese known as manic depression.
Lamotrigine prevents epileptic fits or seizures by stabilising excessive electrical activity in the brain. It's thought to achieve this in two ways: by reducing the activity of a natural 'nerve-exciting' agent called glutamate in the brain, and by preventing electrical signals from building up in nerve cells in the brain.
