Go beyond okay When it comes to your epilepsy

BETTER PARTIAL-ONSET SEIZURE CONTROL IS POSSIBLE

Adding Vimpat to your current anti-seizure medication may provide better partial-onset seizure control. Vimpat has been proven to significantly reduce the number of partial-onset seizures. In clinical studies, more patients who added Vimpat reduced their partial-onset seizures by 50% or more versus those who added placebo.

When will you go beyond okay?

I would say ‘I'm okay,’ and that was kind of a code word for ‘not so great.’ So when it came to my seizure control, just okay wasn't enough. I wanted to be better than just okay.

When will you go beyond okay?

I had a seizure at work, and I realized that I was not doing okay. When you think just being ‘okay’ is okay, then you’re not willing to do anything else. You have to finally realize that you need more than ‘just okay.’

Important Safety Information

Vimpat may not be for everyone. Ask your healthcare provider if Vimpat is right for you.

Warnings and Precautions

Antiepileptic drugs, including Vimpat, may cause suicidal thoughts or actions in a very small number of people, about 1 in 500. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have new or worsening symptoms of depression, any unusual changes in mood or behavior, or suicidal thoughts, behavior, or thoughts about self harm that you have never had before or may be worse than before.

Do not stop taking VIMPAT without first talking to your healthcare provider. Stopping Vimpat suddenly can cause serious problems. Stopping seizure medicine suddenly in a patient who has epilepsy can cause seizures that will not stop.

Vimpat may also cause you to feel dizzy, have double vision, feel sleepy, or have problems with coordination and walking. You should not drive, operate machinery or do other dangerous activities until you know how Vimpat affects you.

Vimpat may cause you to have an irregular heartbeat or may cause you to feel faint. Call your healthcare provider if you have a fast, slow, or pounding heartbeat, shortness of breath, feel lightheaded, or if you fainted or feel like you are going to faint.

Vimpat is a federally controlled substance (C-V) because it can be abused or lead to drug dependence. Keep your Vimpat in a safe place to protect it from theft. Do not give it to anyone else, because it may harm them.

In rare cases, Vimpat may cause a serious allergic reaction that may affect your skin or other parts of your body such as your liver or blood cells. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have a skin rash or hives, fever or swollen glands that do not go away, shortness of breath, swelling of the legs, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, or dark urine.

Before taking Vimpat, tell your healthcare provider if you have or have had depression, mood problems, or suicidal thoughts or behavior; have heart, kidney or liver problems; have abused prescription medicines, street drugs or alcohol in the past, are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

Vimpat® oral solution contains aspartame, a source of phenylalanine.

Common Adverse Reactions

Talk to your healthcare provider about other possible side effects with VIMPAT. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
