new push to use some of the newer antiepileptics
You'll see a new push to use some of the newer antiepileptics...Lamictal (lamotrigine), Trileptal (oxcarbazepine), Topamax (topiramate), and Neurontin (gabapentin).
Experts now say these are as effective as some of the older antiepileptics for seizures...and better tolerated.
Some of these drugs are approved only for ADJUNCT therapy. But the latest guidelines say they are also appropriate for INITIAL therapy.
