What is Fycompa (perampanel) for?

Fycompa (perampanel) is an antiepileptic medicine used to treat adults and children from 12 years of age with partial-onset seizures (epileptic fits) with or without secondary generalisation1.

How does Fycompa (perampanel) work?

Epilepsy is caused by excessive electrical activity in the brain. Although the precise mechanism by which Fycompa (perampanel) works is not fully understood, it is thought to block the action of the neurotransmitter glutamate. Neurotransmitters are naturally-occurring chemicals in the nervous system that allow nerve cells to communicate with each other. Glutamate is the main stimulatory neurotransmitter in nerve cells which can trigger and maintain seizures. Therefore by blocking glutamate’s actions, Fycompa (perampanel) is thought to stop epileptic seizures from occurring1.

Fycompa (perampanel) was approved for the treatment of partial-onset seizures in adults and children older than 12 years of age by:

  • FDA (USA) October 22, 20125

  • EMA (EU) on July 07, 20121

  • TGA (AUS) on May 23, 20144

The approvals were based on several studies that have shown Fycompa (perampanel) to be more effective than placebo in reducing the frequency of epileptic seizures1,3. In one study, the percentage of patients who experienced a decrease in seizure frequency of at least 50% was 37.6% for patients taking 8 mg Fycompa (perampanel) and 36.1% for patients taking 12 mg Fycompa (perampanel), compared with 26.4% of patients taking placebo. In another study, 33.3% and 33.9% of patients taking 8 mg and 12 mg Fycompa (perampanel) respectively showed a decrease in seizure frequency of at least 50%, compared with 14.7% of patients taking placebo. A third study showed a significant decrease in seizure frequency only in patients taking 4 mg and 8 mg Fycompa but not in patients taking a dose of 2 mg1.

For patients with primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures, a type of generalized seizure that affects the entire brain, Fycompa (perampanel) was also more effective than placebo: 58% of the patients given Fycompa (perampanel) had at least a 50% reduction in frequency of seizures, compared with 36% of those given the dummy treatment. Supportive evidence from patients treated for up to 2 years suggested that the benefit was maintained with longer treatment and that some patients could benefit from doses up to 12 mg1.

During the transaction process I was very well informed by the TheSocialMedwork team. They have put as much of their effort to offer best service to me. Moreover the medicine I have ordered was imported two weeks earlier then it was expected. I highly recommend The Social Med Work.
