Combination Therapy for Epilepsy
When it comes to epilepsy treatments, one size doesn’t fit all. In fact, there are more than 20 different antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) available to treat the condition.
Usually, a single medication can help people with epilepsy keep their seizures under control. But if one medication is only partially effective for you, your doctor may sometimes add another drug. Or your doctor may choose to combine your medication with surgery, an implanted device, or a special diet. The ultimate goal is to find the right treatment combination for you—one that optimizes your seizure control and minimizes your side effects.
