The duration of epilepsy found in this study was longer than expected. Of these 21 patients, the onset of symptoms occurred before the patient reached 10 years of age in 10 patients antepileptic This study included patients with criteria of AS followed up at the Epilepsy Clinic. While CBZ performed better than OXC for time to first seizure, seizure frequency reduction, remission rate, and retention rate, there were no significant differences between these two drugs, a finding that was consistent with previous reports.

The following patients were included in our study: Time to first seizure. Patient registration information contained baseline demographic data such as gender, age of first seizure onset, age of drug initiation, course of epilepsy, seizure type, time from drug initiation to drug discontinuation, follow-up period, time to first seizure, frequency of seizures before and after treatment, percentage of seizure reduction, remission rate, retention rate, reason for discontinuation, adverse effects, underlying etiology birth history, brain injury, cerebral infection, stroke, etc.


Proposal for revised clinical and electroencephalographic classification of epileptic seizures. Need for electroencephalogram video confirmation of atypical absence seizure in children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Patients using multiple AEDs and patients who declined to participate, failed to follow-up, or did not take the medications as advised were excluded.

The clinical, ictal phenomenology and EEG variables were used to reclassify the patients according to Panayiotopoulus criteria analyzing the different epileptic syndromes with absence seizures.

While these cited studies suggested that LTG has the best retention rate, the retention rate of LTG in our study was not the best, and in fact, it was significantly lower than that of OXC.

LTG exhibited the worst performance of the six AEDs with respect to time to first seizure, which was most likely due to the initiation dose and the titration of LTG, both were very low in our study. CBZ had the highest month remission rate Accepted 11 August Your family or other caregivers should also be alert to changes in your mood or symptoms.

Comparative rates of month consecutive remission rate from randomization. Stay alert to changes in your mood or symptoms. This was followed by inadequate seizure control during the next few months. Of the 21 patients, 2 9.

Ictal recording of 12 patients Table 6 Adverse effects of six AEDs. The age at onset of absence seizures, which ranged from 1 to 39 years, is justified by the inclusion of patients with different epileptic syndromes in which absence seizures are found.


Twelve-month remission rate and responder rates for all AEDs were provided in Table 3. Our results show that typical AS are more frequent than atypical. As rash was the most antieileptic adverse effect, it is the primary factor affecting the tolerability of LTG. The present results show that some absence seizures may include ictal phenomena with both simple and complex motor automatisms, confounding diagnosis and leading to inappropriate therapy, as shown by Lombroso, Ferrie and Holmes, and Brown and Tucker 7,8, Eight of these patients This information is not antiepilepric substitute for advice from your doctor.

Analysis of this series of patients with absence antiepilepttic demanded a meticulous review of the currently proposed diagnostic criteria and showed that a careful evaluation of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy may result in a change in the initial diagnosis to a controllable form of epilepsy that is not drug-resistant.

Table 5 Intolerable adverse effects of AEDs, n. Abcence seizures and carbamazepine in adults. Accordingly, LEV is recommended for the treatment lef partial epilepsy, even in patients with systemic disorders.

To be eligible, patients had to meet the following criteria: Patients with newly diagnosed and untreated partial seizures; patients who had failed treatment with a previous monotherapy; and patients in epilepsy remission who had relapsed after treatment withdrawal. Evaluations and assessments Effectiveness was evaluated for both efficacy and tolerability and was measured using the following methods. Received 12 Aprilreceived in final form 28 July
