How to use "Antiepileptic drug" in context?
As the use of pharmaceuticals evolves, so too does the classification of antiepileptic drugs. Included in this classification are drugs used to treat conditions such as seizures, and consequently, antiepileptic drugs are now classified by their mechanism of action. A few examples of these drugs include gabapentin (Neurontin), valproic acid (Depakote), lamotrigine (Lamictal), and carbamazepine (Tegretol).
Each antiepileptic drug possesses a unique ability to interfere with the neuronal activity that is often responsible for seizures.
