About the Authors
  • This book reviews the use of antiepileptic drugs focusing on the interactions between these drugs and between antiepileptics and other drugs. These interactions can be beneficial or can cause harm. The aim of this book is to increase awareness of the possible impact of combination pharmacotherapies. Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions are discussed supported by clinical and experimental data. The book consists of five sections covering the general concepts and advantages of combination therapies, the principles of drug interactions, the mechanisms of interactions, drug interactions in specific populations or in patients with co-morbid health conditions, and concludes with a look at the future directions for this field of research. The book will be of interest to all who prescribe antiepileptics to epileptic and non-epileptic patients, including epileptologists, neurologists, neuro-pediatricians, psychiatrists and general practitioners.

    • Covers the benefits and pitfalls of combination therapy
    • Describes mechanisms of interactions as well as clinical significance
    • Contributions from an international team of authors and editors

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book contains a wealth of information both for everyday practice and for more theoretical aspect. Interactions between AED … covered in great detail. … Why is this book so important? The authors explain it in their foreword. As a substantial proportion of patients with epilepsy will not become seizure free with one drug, combination therapy is necessary and therefore often used.' Official Journal of the European Paediatric Neurology Society
