Answer

Anticonvulsant medication is the mainstay of treatment for seizures, although the choice of anticonvulsant drug varies with different seizure types and epileptic syndromes. The number of anticonvulsants has increased, offering many more medication choices for physicians and their patients. For more information, see Antiepleptic Drugs.
