Adverse Effects of Antiepileptic Drugs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Treatment of children with epilepsy strives for complete seizure control without medication side effects. However, antiepileptic drugs can cause non-specific dose-related responses, unique effects specific to a given drug, or rare but potentially dangerous idiosyncratic reactions. This chapter examines the range of potential adverse reactions when using medication to treat epilepsy, and details the main reported side effects for each of the major antiepileptic drugs. Also, the strategy of minimizing the risk of serious adverse effects by compiling at-risk clinic profiles from reports of idiopathic drug reactions is introduced.
