Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
This drug stabilises the neuronal membrane by binding to sodium channels, and decreasing permeability to Na+ ions. This blocks initiation and conductance of nerve impulses. ChEMBL report that this drug acts by blocking sodium channel α subunits. The genes SNC1A-SNC11A are listed in this database in the Voltage-gated sodium channels section.
