Description

Anti-epileptic agents for Prescribers and Medical Students. Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions. Although it is one of the most common neurological conditions, the medications that are used to treat and prevent seizures are vast and complicated. With so many drugs on the market, all with various drug interactions or side effects, determining which is best can be a challenge. Being a neuroscience pharmacist, I have seen, I have spent years assisting our neurologists choose the correct medication for each patient. Each patient is completely different and should be treated as such. Each anti-epileptic has its own pros and cons. There is no

“size fits all” medication, but here you can learn more about each medication so you as a provider or learner can understand each medication and possibly which may or may not be best for individuals. My passion is to help students learn and have a true appreciation of the complexity of anti-epileptic agents. My aim is to help providers to understand the magnitude and importance of selecting the best anti-epileptic agents as possible. Check out this course to learn about the most commonly prescribed anti-epileptics. I hope to pass along my contagious passion when it comes to neurology in this course!
