1. What is epilepsy?
5,5-Dimethyloxazolidine-2,4-dione CAS 695-53-4 manufacturers told us that As the headquarters of the brain is to control the body's activities by issuing normal electrical signals, and epilepsy is a recurrent abnormal discharge of the brain. When brain cells are over-excited, rapid and even explosive distribution of disorganized electrical signals leads to seizures. When it happens, there may be some strange feelings or manifestations such as muscle stiffness, twitching or even loss of consciousness. Most people can return to normal within a few minutes.
2. What are the causes of epilepsy?
5,5-Dimethyloxazolidine-2,4-dione CAS 695-53-4 suppliers said that common causes of epilepsy are: brain trauma, brain tumors, stroke, intracranial infections such as meningitis, encephalitis, etc. However, 70% of patients with epilepsy are unexplained, and children are more likely than adults to have unexplained epilepsy, which may be related to genetic problems.
3. Can epilepsy be cured?
After treatment, symptoms of 80% of patients can be controlled, and withdrawal can be stopped if there is no seizure for a long time. However, some patients with refractory epilepsy need long-term medication or surgery.
4. What types of seizures are there?
According to the location of abnormal discharge, seizures can be divided into two categories: partial seizures and generalized seizures. Partial seizures refer to abnormal discharges in the brain, and the symptoms are related to brain function at the discharge site. A generalized seizure refers to an abnormal discharge of the entire brain, usually resulting in loss of consciousness.
5. What harm does seizures cause? Is life dangerous?
Most seizures do not cause harm, but may increase the risk of drowning, falls, and injuries. Sometimes epileptic seizures last for a long time, or one episode immediately after, which we call "epileptic status." This is very dangerous because it can increase the burden on the heart and lungs and put the brain in a dangerous state of hypoxia.
6. At present, epilepsy only occurs once, will it be re-issued in the future?
If it only happens once, it will probably not be sent again in the future. However, if the episode is partial, or the following conditions: abnormal EEG, can cause brain lesions of epilepsy, brothers and sisters with epilepsy, there are still possibilities for recurrence in the future.
7. What are the treatments for epilepsy?
Treatment mainly includes drug treatment and non-medication:
(1) drug treatment: including carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, sodium valproate, lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, topiramate, gabapentin, levetiracetam, tiagabine, aminohexene Acid, etc. 5,5-Dimethyloxazolidine-2,4-dione CAS 695-53-4, 5,5-Dimethyl-2,4-oxazolidinedione and Dimethadione are the main raw materials for antiepileptic drugs
(2) Non-drug treatment: including surgery, vagus nerve stimulation, publicity and education, biofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy, family counseling, relaxation therapy, behavior modification therapy, yoga, ketogenic diet, etc.
