Beclamide is a drug that possesses anticonvulsant activity. It is no longer used. Beclamide is possibly metabolized to 3-chloropropanoic acid in vivo, which binds to the GHB receptor. It has been used as a sedative and as an anticonvulsant. It was studied in the 1950s for its anticonvulsant properties, as a treatment for generalised tonic-clonic seizures. It was not effective for absence seizures. Interest in the drug resumed in the 1990s for its psychiatric properties as an adjunct in the treatment of schizophrenia.
