New antiepileptic, Topamax (topiramate)
You'll hear about a new antiepileptic, Topamax (topiramate)... for treating partial onset seizures in adults.
It's available now in the U.S...later this year in Canada.
Physicians usually treat partial seizures with carbamazepine or phenytoin. Topamax is for add-on therapy...for seizures that aren't controlled.
