About SYMPAZAN (clobazam)
It’s clobazam, in a film about the size of a postage stamp.
SYMPAZAN with PharmFilm® technology.
For years, clobazam was only available in pills or liquids. Thanks to PharmFilm technology, SYMPAZAN is the only product to offer clobazam in a convenient film.
SYMPAZAN is placed on top of the tongue, where it:
- Adheres and dissolves
- Delivers 5 mg, 10 mg, or 20 mg of clobazam with no water or liquid needed
SYMPAZAN is bioequivalent to ONFI®
Bioequivalent means that both of them:
- Release clobazam into the body at about the same rate and in the same amount
- Have the same active ingredient
