Information for Healthcare Providers

DIACOMIT® (stiripentol) is an effective, FDA-approved medication that was developed specifically to treat seizures associated with Dravet syndrome. It is indicated for patients 6 months and older (weighing 15 lb or more) taking clobazam. There are no clinical data to support the use of DIACOMIT as monotherapy in Dravet syndrome.1

DIACOMIT may help patients achieve profound seizure reduction so families can celebrate everyday wins.1
