Pexion contains the active substance imepitoin
How does Pexion work?
The active substance in Pexion, imepitoin, is an anti-epileptic and anti-anxiety medicine. Epilepsy is caused by excessive electrical activity in the brain. Imepitoin partially activates the receptors for the neurotransmitter GABA, a substance that reduces electrical activity in the brain. Neurotransmitters such as GABA are chemicals that allow nerve cells to communicate with each other. By activating its receptors, imepitoin increases GABA’s effects and helps to prevent seizures. Imepitoin also has a weak blocking effect on calcium channels. These are pores which let calcium move into the nerve cells allowing electrical impulses to be transmitted between nerve cells. This may also help in controlling seizures. Imepitoin’s effect on GABA receptors also reduces fear and anxiety.
