Term Definition
Anticonvulsant therapy

Medications that reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. Sometimes seizures can stop completely when a person is on an anticonvulsant. Some common anticonvulsants used in the United States are valproic acid (Depakote), levetiracetam (Keppra), zonisamide (Zonegran), and topiramate (Topamax), but there are also many other options your child’s neurologist may choose. Anticonvulsants are often used for other conditions not related to seizures or epilepsy.
