No, Vimpat (lacosamide) is not a narcotic.

It is an antiepileptic drug. Exactly how lacosamide works is not known, but it may work by slowing abnormal nerve impulses in the brain.

Vimpat is used together with other medications to treat partial-onset seizures in people with epilepsy who are at least 17 years old.
