The core of the new third edition is its completely updated section on antiepileptic drugs, including an in-depth discussion of dosage considerations, drug toxicity, teratogenicity, and drug interactions, with recommendations for optimal combinations when multiple drug therapy is required.

Features unique to the third edition include:

  • Expanded section on the basic science and mechanism of epilepsy
  • Completely updated drug chapters, including newly released drugs and those in development
  • Expanded chapters on vagus nerve stimulation and surgical treatment
  • Expanded section on co-morbidities

The third edition includes 21 new chapters, including discussions of: epileptic channelopathies epileptogenic cerebral cortical malformation epilepsy genes etiologies and workup evidence-based medicine issues related to drug selection Levetiracetam Sulthiame Pregabalin herbal medications basic and advanced imaging immunotherapy issues vagus nerve stimulation therapy cognitive and psychiatric co-morbidities and educational placement and psychosocial aspects of epilepsy.

About the Author:

Dr. Dodson is also the editor of The Assessment of Cognitive Function in Epilepsy.

Review:

"This second edition of a book that has already become a classic maintains the high standard of the previous edition...All child neurologists, but also all those who have to deal professionally with childhood epilepsy will want to have this book on their shelf for frequent use...it is undoubtedly a major work on this subject." --Epileptic Disorders

"Up-to-date, well presented and accessible. Recommended to all those who are interested in epilepsy even if they do not have a particular interest in pediatrics." --Journal of Neurology

This book will be an essential reference for pharmacists caring for children with seizures and epilepsy. I highly recommended this book to any health care practitioner who participates in the care of infants and children with epilepsy. --Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (CJHP), Vol 62 No 3 May-June 2009
