Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a severe form of epilepsy that begins in early childhood and is characterized by multiple types of seizures and intellectual disability.
LGS patients may often have difficulty swallowing pills and oral suspensions due to physical, behavioral or cognitive limitations. The Sympazan oral film may be an easier dosage form for LGS patients to use. The berry flavored Sympazan oral film is placed on top of the tongue where it dissolves without the need for liquid.
