Felbamate is an anti-epileptic medication, also called an anticonvulsant.

Felbamate is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat seizures in adults with epilepsy. Felbamate is also used to treat children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a severe form of childhood epilepsy that also causes developmental and behavior problems.

Felbamate is usually given after other seizure medications have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms.
