About this book

Antiepileptic Drug Interactions: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition provides a pocket-sized, systematic description of the most clinically relevant drug interactions that occur between AEDs and also between AEDs and non-AEDs. AEDs are presented alphabetically and by drug class in three sections for easy access: Drug interactions between AEDs; Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AEDs: Interactions affecting AEDs; and Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AEDs: Interactions affected by AEDs.

 

Antiepileptic Drug Interactions: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition should help physicians make more rational choices when polytherapy regimens are indicated and should be of interest to all who treat patients with epilepsy: neurologists and neurosurgeons, trainees at all levels, general practitioners and epilepsy nurse specialists.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Neurologists, internists, and primary care providers are the intended audience. … Physicians who use AEDs for nonepilepsy indications, such as pain management, also will find this a valuable resource. … This book fills an important niche. … It is certainly a welcome entry for all neurologists who are involved in caring for patients with epilepsy and struggle with providing the best treatment options for this difficult condition. I fully recommend this book to anyone caring for patients with epilepsy.” (Raj D. Sheth, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
