Expect Frequent Dose Changes With Antiseizure Meds to Avoid Side Effects

You're on the front lines for avoiding mix-ups with antiepileptics...phenytoin, carbamazepine, phenobarbital, etc.

Watch for look-alike/sound-alike meds. Keppra may be confused for Keflex...Aptiom for Ativan...or lamotrigine for lamivudine.

Double-check you have the right dosage form. They may not be equivalent...and dosing can be different between products.
