Epanutin injection contains the active ingredient phenytoin, which is a type of medicine called an anticonvulsant. Phenytoin works by stabilising electrical activity in the brain. The brain and nerves are made up of many nerve cells that communicate with each other through electrical signals.

These signals must be carefully regulated for the brain and nerves to function properly. When abnormally rapid and repetitive electrical signals are released in the brain, the brain becomes over-stimulated and normal function is disturbed. This can result in fits or seizures.

Phenytoin controls seizures by preventing the excessive electrical activity in the brain. It is thought to achieve this by preventing sodium from entering nerve cells when they begin to fire rapid and repetitive electrical signals.

A build up of sodium in the nerve cells is necessary for the electrical signal to build up and be passed on to other nerve cells. As phenytoin prevents this, it helps stabilise the electrical activity in the brain. Phenytoin is given by injection or drip into a vein to control repeated seizures.

Epanutin injection (phenytoin)

Sometimes it is necessary to give Epanutin RMP into your muscle if you cannot continue to take it by mouth. This is not normally continued for longer than one week. When switching back to oral Epanutin, the dose should be reduced to half the original oral dose for the same period of time that the intramuscular injection was given. This is because phenytoin continues to be released from your muscles for sometime after the injections have been given.
