Answer

This section discusses the use of anticonvulsant agents for absence, tonic or atonic, myoclonic, and tonic-clonic seizures. A discussion of treatment for focal-onset seizures, including refractory cases, also follows, with some findings from the Veterans Administration (VA) Cooperative Studies and Standard and New Antiepileptic Drugs (SANAD) trial.
