Substrate Report for: Eslicarbazepine-acetate

Eslicarbazepine acetate is the acetate ester of licarbazepine. An anticonvulsant, it is used as an adjunctive therapy for epilepsy by inhibiting repeated neuronal firing and stabilizing the inactivated state of voltage-gated sodium channels, thus preventing their return to the activated state during which seizure activity can occur. It is a dibenzoazepine, a carboxamide and a member of ureas.
