Zonisamide Capsules

Anti-Seizure Medication

Zonisamide can be used in either cats or dogs to control seizures. It is typically given as a supplement to phenobarbital, but may be considered for initial treatment as monotherapy in dogs.

Seizure control in dogs and cats is usually straight forward with predictable responsive to phenobarbital. This is not always the case though. Some animals need more than one medication to be adequately controlled, or there may be reasons why phenobarbital is not appropriate medication to give. For these patients, there are several other medications that can be used to supplement or replace phenobarbital. Zonisamide is one of these medications.

Zonisamide is typically given twice daily in dogs, usually as a supplement to phenobarbital. Zonisamide has long-lasting activity in cats and can used once daily. Can be given with or without food.

Concerns and Side Effects
  • Sedation/drowsiness is the most common side effect
