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 a monotherapy.1
With Biocodex By Your Side, it’s easier than ever to get a prescription filled for DIACOMIT. And with the latest FDA approval, patients can start treatment as early as 6 months old. DIACOMIT is available through our specialty pharmacy partner and covered by most insurance plans.
Patients pay an average of less than $3 for DIACOMIT.31
