Epilepsy is a neurological disorder which is characterized by sudden episodes of disturbances in sensory, loss of consciousness, that is associated with abnormal electrical impulses in the brain, which requires typically two unprovoked seizures. The incidence of a first unprovoked seizure was 61 per 100,000 compared to the incidence of epilepsy of 44 per 100,000. The International League against Epilepsy (ILAE) has proposed two major schemes for the classification of Seizures and Epilepsies: The International Classification of Epileptic Seizures and the International Classification of the Epilepsies and Epilepsy Syndromes. A seizure results when a sudden imbalance occurs between the excitatory and inhibitory forces within the network of cortical neurons. The management of Epilepsy can be done with appropriate selection of Antiepileptic Drug based on type of seizure and its frequency.
