Ospolot is a brand name for Sulthiame. According to the Australian Medicines Handbook (AMH), Sulthiame is indicated for epilepsy, especially temporal lobe and myoclonic seizures. Sulthiame may also be prescribed for benign focal (partial) epilepsy of childhood.
Sulthiame is an antiepileptic, or drug that prevents seizures. Sultiame is also a sulfa drug and a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. It is believed that Sultiame works in cases of epilepsy by inhibiting nerve signals.
