What are Anticonvulsant Drugs?
Anticonvulsants are a diverse group of pharmacological agents used in the treatment of epileptic seizures. Hence, they are also referred to as antiepileptic drugs or as antiseizure drugs. Anticonvulsants like Carbamazepine or Gabapentin are also at times, used as pain-easing agents; as well as mood stabilizers in bipolar disorders, as in the case of Valproate.
About the Different Types of Anticonvulsant Drugs
Talking about the different classifications of anticonvulsant drugs, the second-generation anticonvulsants are in general, better tolerated and have a broader therapeutic range than the classic or first-generation anticonvulsant drugs.
The choice of drug is guided by the type of seizure. First-line treatment for focal seizures includes drugs like lamotrigine or levetiracetam, while valproate is used for generalized seizures.
How do Anticonvulsant Drugs work?
In the simplest terms, anticonvulsant drugs work by reducing abnormal electrical activities and blocking the movement of pain signals to the brain. Their effect is usually seen in around two hours and remains in the body for about one to two days.
