two new anti-epileptics

You'll see two new anti-epileptics...Trileptal (oxcarbazepine, Novartis) and Keppra (levetiracetam, UCB Pharma).

Trileptal is structurally related to Tegretol (carbamazepine).

Trileptal and Tegretol have similar efficacy...but Trileptal is less likely to cause serious hematologic toxicity or severe skin reactions.
