Frequently asked questions about Zonisamide

Q. What happens if I stop taking Zonisep?
Do not stop taking Zonisep without talking to your doctor. Stopping Zonisep suddenly may cause serious problems, including seizures that will not stop.
Q. My friend, who was on Zonisep, developed severe muscle pain with fever. What could this be due to?
Severe muscle pain or weakness, with or without fever, could be due to Zonisep. Consult your doctor immediately. The doctor may suggest some blood tests to check your levels of serum creatine phosphokinase and aldolase enzymes. Elevated levels of these enzymes may prompt the doctor to discontinue Zonisep.

One dangerous side effect of Zonisep in children is decreased sweating with fever. This affects children but not adults and is more common in summers.
Q. I have been taking Zonisep for epilepsy since a month, but now I feel that my life has come to an end and sometimes I want to harm myself. Is it because of the medicine? What should I do?
Though uncommon, Zonisep may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior. Sometimes, it can also be due to the disease itself. You should immediately consult your doctor who will consider discontinuing Zonisep. We recommend that you take the help of your friend or relative to go to the hospital.
Q. Does Zonisep cause weight loss?
Yes, Zonisep may cause weight loss. If you lose weight, consult a dietician for dietary supplement or try to increase your food portions. In case you lose a lot of weight, consider discontinuing Zonisep after consulting your doctor. Weight loss may be more serious in children, so be cautious and keep monitoring the weight.
