The six broad-spectrum antiepileptics to know

Broad-spectrum antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) can treat both focal and generalized seizures, and are often used when patients have an undifferentiated seizure disorder. Alphabetically, they are:

  1. Clonazepam
  2. Lamotrigine
  3. Levetiracetam
  4. Topiramate
  5. Valproic acid
  6. Zonisamide

I even made up a mnemonic: Cloned Lambs Love To Visit Zoos.

Also, rufinamide. Personally, never heard of it.
