COMMON Medications

Below is a list of some of the most common medications currently used to treat epilepsy. The type of medication prescribed will depend on several factors specific to each patient, such as which side effects can be tolerated, other illnesses they may have, and which delivery method is acceptable. Medications used to treat epilepsy are called antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and they are mostly available as oral tablets or capsules. Talk with your doctor  about this important issue.
