GABITRIL (tiagabine hydrochloride) Tablets Overview
GABITRIL is available in four dosage strengths:
2 mg, 4 mg, 12 mg, and 16 mg.
GABITRIL is a prescription medicine that is used with other medicines to treat certain types of seizures (partial onset seizures) in patients 12 years of age and older with epilepsy.
If you do not have a seizure disorder and you take GABITRIL, there is a chance that you may have a seizure or seizures that do not stop.
GABITRIL may cause suicidal thoughts or actions in a very small number of people, about one in 500. Call your doctor right away if you have any new or worsening depression, suicidal thoughts or actions, or unusual changes in mood or behavior.
Before taking GABITRIL, talk to your doctor about all of your medical conditions and all the medicines that you take. Take GABITRIL exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not stop taking GABITRIL without talking to your doctor. Stopping GABITRIL suddenly can increase your chances of having a seizure or cause seizures that do not stop.
Common side effects include dizziness or lightheadedness, loss of strength or energy, drowsiness, nausea, nervousness or irritability, tremor, stomach pain, problems with concentrating or attention, and abnormal thinking.
