Epilepsy is a condition manifested by seizures. These seizures have an impact on the patient's quality of life. As patients with epilepsy may receive antiepileptic drugs for a long period, up to a lifetime, and they will require treatment with other agents for various other conditions at some stage, it is important that both patients and health professionals are aware of possible interactions with their anti-epilepsy medication. This article is a brief review of epilepsy, its treatment, seizure threshold, possible interactions of anti-epileptic medications with other medicines, and medications that may alter seizure threshold.
