About the Authors
  • This practical and concise book is an essential reference guide for use by all clinicians and allied health professionals that treat or care for patients with epilepsy. In full color throughout, this volume presents the antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), 34 in total, in alphabetical order and for each AED the information is divided into eight colored sections: general therapeutics, pharmacokinetics, interaction profile, adverse effects, dosing and use, special populations, overview, and suggested reading. This second edition has been extensively revised and updated. Specific additions include: • inclusion of the new drugs perampanel and retigabine (also called ezogabine) • updated pharmacokinetic interactions • suggested pediatric dosing schedules for several drugs • discussion about bone health, and vitamin D monitoring and supplementation • information on teratogenicity in the sections on pregnancy. This handy pocket book will be an excellent companion for all clinicians that treat patients with epilepsy.

    • Drugs are arranged alphabetically and information is presented in color-coded sections to aid navigation and help readers identify specific characteristics
