Epilepsy Medications

Introduction to Medications
If you have epilepsy, chances are you are taking at least one type of anti-epileptic drug (AED) to keep your seizures under control. Different types of seizures are treated by different types of drugs. For most people these drugs effectively control seizures, but for some they do not, even when the person is put on several different kinds of anti-epileptic drugs at the same time.

All anti-epileptic drugs have side-effects for some people. It may take a while for the doctor to determine which medication and dosage is best for you. And over time, your drug requirements may change.
