Abstract
This updated third edition of a successful book is a description of both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic antiepileptic drug (AED) interactions, including details of the magnitude and mechanism of interactions, and also of drug combinations that are not associated with interactions and therefore can be coprescribed without undue concern. Presented in alphabetical order and by drug class, drug interactions that occur between AEDs and also between AEDs and non-AEDs are described in three sections: Drug interactions between AEDs; Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AED Drugs: Interactions affecting AEDs; Drug interactions between AEDs and non-AED Drugs: Interactions affected by AEDs. Antiepileptic Drug Interactions: A Clinical Guide, 3rd Edition with its clear, concise and unambiguous content will allow physicians and allied health professionals to make more rational choices when AED polytherapy regimens are indicated. There is always a choice and avoiding highly interacting drugs and choosing drug combinations that are minimally interacting or do not interact should be the goal in treating patients with epilepsy. This book provides all the necessary information so as to allow this goal to be achieved and, if necessary, to aid effective management of AED interactions.

Abstract
A description of our current understanding of antiepileptic drug use during pregnancy, this book includes chapters on the impact of seizures on the mother and developing child, changes in maternal physiology during pregnancy and its impact on drug disposition, and the pharmacokinetic differences between the various anti-seizure medications. It also deals with the possible harmful effects of antiepileptic drug exposure during pregnancy on the physical and intellectual development of the fetus. Clinicians have to balance the potential adverse effects of the medicine for the fetus and mother-to-be against the risks that uncontrolled seizures hold for both when treating pregnant women with antiepileptic drugs. Only recently have enough scientific data emerged to provide a rational basis for treatment decisions that take in both aspects. This work provides a single, accessible, and up-to-date resource for busy clinicians.

Abstract
This second edition of a successful book provides updated clinical and research knowledge, including information on the licensing of new antiepileptic drugs. All chapters are updated to reflect present accepted practice and new chapters highlighting the importance of the genetic aspects of epilepsy, nonpharmacological treatments, and the impact of epilepsy on families and carers have been added. Ongoing developments in the general population, which will more likely than not become relevant to the intellectually disabled population, are discussed. The impact of epilepsy on the person themselves and their carers is acknowledged, and person-centred treatment programs with a multifaceted team approach are proposed. This book is aimed at physicians and residents in neurology and pediatrics, as well as other practitioners working with this population, such as neuropsychologists. Epilepsy and Intellectual Disabilities, Second Edition is recommended reading for all those caring for this important group of individuals.

Abstract
This book presents scientific evidence about epilepsy along with straightforward guidance and recommendations. Responses to frequently asked questions and clarification of uncertainties are provided to empower patients to optimize their medical, psychological and social care. This book helps mediate between patients and health care professionals and can assist both sides to understand the condition of epilepsy at all levels. The information provided in the book empowers patients to share decision making with their carers and clinicians and enables them to make informed decisions, by taking into account the best scientific evidence, as well as the patients' values and preferences. The Epilepsy Book: A Companion for Patients is ideal for patients with epilepsy and their carers, and will also be of interest to health care professionals, medical students and teachers. Thalia Valeta's approach to epilepsy facilitates deeper understanding of the unmet needs and expectations of patients.
