Abstract: Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain characterized byOn 1 or 2 antiepileptic drugs, around 70-80 % of people with newly diagnosed epilepsy will eventually achieve remission an enduring predisposition to generate seizures. Treatment of epilepsy with standard anticonvulsants such as phenytoin, carbamazepine, valproic acid and phenobarbital is often complicated by side effects. Thus, there is an unmet need for a highly efficacious AED with a good safety profile and very few side effects. A host of newer AEDs or modified versions of the previously available drugs, are available which if not more are at least equally efficacious to the older AEDs with a better safety profile and fewer drug interactions.
