Abstract

Several new compounds are undergoing extensive investigation in the United States and Europe. The available animal and human studies suggest that these new antiepileptic drugs are very promising. Some or all of them will be approved for clinical use during the next decade. New antiepileptic drugs offer new options in the treatment of epilepsy. Although there already has been considerable testing of these drugs, additional studies that incorporate traditional medical outcome measures and quality of life measures remain to be done to establish the ultimate role of the new antiepileptic drugs in the treatment hierarchy for epilepsy.
