"Polypharmacy in epilepsy"

Polypharmacy in epilepsy

Polypharmacy is common in patients with epilepsy. Patients taking antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) frequently reported also taking other CNS-acting medications (i.e. opioids, benzodiazepines, and seizure threshold-lowering medications). CNS polypharmacy poses health risks. Future research is needed to explore drivers of polypharmacy and strategies to help mitigate potentially harmful prescription use in this high-risk population.
