Zavesca Information

Zavesca Details (Brand and Generic) currently offers the brand Zavesca from Canada manufactured by Janssen. The generic Miglustat is available from Canada by different manufacturers.


The brand and generic Zavesca comes in the strength of 100 mg capsules.


Zavesca (Miglustat) is used for the treatment of mild to moderate Type 1 Gaucher disease in adult patients over 18 years of age who cannot use imiglucerase (Cerezyme), or enzyme replacement therapy and to slow the progression of some of the neurologic symptoms in patients with Niemann-Pick Type C disease (affecting the brain and nervous system). Type I Gaucher disease is a condition in which there is a build-up of glucosylceramide in certain cells of the body's immune system called macrophages. This results in liver and spleen enlargement, changes in the blood, and bone disease. Zavesca may improve the condition of the liver, spleen, bones, and blood cells in people with Type I Gaucher disease. However, it is not a cure for this condition. In Niemann-Pick Type C disease, glycosphingolipids (fats) buildup in cells in the brain. This can result in problems with eye movement, eye sight (vision), balance, swallowing, speech, and memory, and in seizures (fits). Zavesca (miglustat) prevents an enzyme called glucosylceramide synthase from working, thereby reducing the production of fatty substances called glycosphingolipid glucosylceramide in cells. Always take Zavesca exactly as your doctor has instructed you. Zavesca capsules should be swallowed whole with water. The risk of diarrhea may be reduced if Zavesca is taken between meals.
