Approved drug
brivaracetam is an approved drug (EMA & FDA (2016))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Brivaracetam is a 4-n-propyl analogue of levetiracetam with anticonvulsant properties [3]. Like levetiracetam this drug inhibits synaptic vesicle protein 2A (SV2A), but with 10X higher binding affinity. Brivaracetam is brain penetrant and has a fast onset of action [2]. It can also inhibit sodium channels.
