Introduction.- Section 1: Drug interactions between AEDs.- Section 2: Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AEDs: Interactions affecting AEDs.- Section 3: Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AEDs: Interactions affected by AEDs.
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.
Covers all clinically licensed AEDs, including those licensed only in specific countries or that have limited indications; these are presented in alphabetical order for ease of reference
Three separate sections highlight the way AED interactions occur to assist the reader in quickly and easily locating any potential interactions for specific drug classes
Includes details of the mechanism and magnitude of the interaction to inform the reader to anticipate the clinical significance of the drug interaction and thus allow for appropriate and timely dose adjustment to minimize the consequence of the interaction
