I believe that having partial-onset seizures has taken away
a lot of myself, a lot of my time.
But being able to share in the experience of BRIVIACT has given
me back a lot of my time.

Melanie, Real BRIVIACT Patient from the clinical trials

BRIVIACT was a beneficial medication for me. I was able to take a full dose of BRIVIACT from day one, and it ended up helping me out by lowering the number of seizures I had.

What is the most important information I should know about BRIVIACT?

BRIVIACT is a federally controlled substance (CV) because it can be abused or lead to dependence. Keep BRIVIACT in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse. Selling or giving away BRIVIACT may harm others and is against the law.

Like other antiepileptic drugs, BRIVIACT may cause suicidal thoughts or actions in a very small number of people, about 1 in 500 people taking it.

Call a healthcare provider right away if you have any of these symptoms, especially if they are new, worse, or worry you:

  • thoughts about suicide or dying
  • attempts to commit suicide
  • new or worse depression
  • new or worse anxiety
  • feeling agitated or restless
  • panic attacks
  • trouble sleeping (insomnia)
  • new or worse irritability
  • acting aggressive, feeling angry, or being violent
  • acting on dangerous impulses
  • an extreme increase in activity and talking (mania)
  • other unusual changes in behavior or mood

Do not stop BRIVIACT without first talking to a healthcare provider.

  • Stopping BRIVIACT suddenly can cause serious problems.
  • Stopping a seizure medicine suddenly can cause seizures that will not stop (status epilepticus).

Who should not take BRIVIACT?

Do not take BRIVIACT if you are allergic to brivaracetam or any of the inactive ingredients in BRIVIACT.

What should I tell my healthcare provider before starting BRIVIACT?

Before taking BRIVIACT, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • have or have had depression, mood problems, or suicidal thoughts or behavior
  • have liver problems
  • have abused or been dependent on prescription medicines, street drugs, or alcohol
  • have any other medical problems
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if BRIVIACT will harm your unborn baby.
  • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if BRIVIACT passes into your breast milk.

What should I avoid while taking BRIVIACT?

Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how BRIVIACT affects you. BRIVIACT may cause drowsiness, tiredness, dizziness, and problems with your balance and coordination.

Irritability and anxiety are common with BRIVIACT, and can be severe.
