Designed for quick point-of-care reference, this handbook offers evidence-based guidelines on use of antiepileptic drugs for seizures, psychiatric disorders, pain, and headache. Chapters cover all drugs, including the recently approved drug pregabalin. For each drug, the authors list FDA-approved indications and summarize the evidence for efficacy and tolerability from clinical trials for epileptic, psychiatric, pain, and headache indications. Also included are recommendations from professional societies such as the American Academy of Neurology, American Psychiatric Association, and Association for the Study of Headache. Tables in the final chapter summarize these recommendations and indicate the authors' choice of drug in various clinical situations.
