Anti-Epileptic Drugs Overview
Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs) are also called as anti-seizure drugs because they provide symptomatic treatment only and have not been demonstrated to alter the course of epilepsy. AEDs have been found to decrease the frequency or the severity of seizures in people with epilepsy. The ideal AED is expected to maximize quality of life by minimizing seizures and adverse drug effects. According to WHO, there are approximately 50 Million people worldwide suffering from epilepsy, accounting for 0.6% of the global burden of disease. Seizures are defined as the clinical manifestation of an abnormal, disorderly discharge of the brain's nerve cells, resulting in a temporary disturbance of motor, sensory, or mental function and a tendency to have recurrent seizures is called epilepsy.
