This updated third edition of a successful book is a description of both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic antiepileptic drug (AED) interactions, including details of the magnitude and mechanism of interactions, and also of drug combinations that are not associated with interactions and therefore can be coprescribed without undue concern. Presented in alphabetical order and by drug class, drug interactions that occur between AEDs and also between AEDs and non-AEDs are described in three sections: Drug interactions between AEDs; Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AED Drugs: Interactions affecting AEDs; Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AED Drugs: Interactions affected by AEDs. Antiepileptic Drug Interactions: A Clinical Guide, 3rd Edition with its clear, concise and unambiguous content will allow physicians and allied health professionals to make more rational choices when AED polytherapy regimens are indicated. There is always a choice and avoiding highly interacting drugs and choosing drug combinations that are minimally interacting or do not interact should be the goal in treating patients with epilepsy. This book provides all the necessary information so as to allow this goal to be achieved and, if necessary, to aid effective management of AED interactions.

ABC of Epilepsy provides a practical guide for general practitioners, and all those working in primary care, on the diagnosis, treatment and management of epilepsy, and for the continued monitoring and long term support of what is still a relatively poorly understood neurological disorder. This brand new title in the ABC series is highly illustrated throughout and presents what epilepsy is, its classification, and how to diagnose it. It covers anti-epileptic drugs and non-drug treatments, as well as self-management and living with epilepsy. Edited by a general practitioner and neurologist team, the ABC of Epilepsy reflects current NICE guidelines and is ideal for all GPs, primary health care professionals, practice nurses and specialist nurses, and non-specialist medical staff who play an increasing role in monitoring and managing of epilepsy patients.
