Résumé
If one patient is diagnosed with epilepsy, the first treatment line is represented by medications, which allow a seizure control in at least 2/3 of patients. Following the steady development of new compounds, there are currently more than 20 antiepileptic agents on the market, and several more will appear in the near future. This review, focusing on the indications and pitfalls of the most used drugs, with a particular attention to the new ones, aims at improving the orientation among this multitude of options. Since there is almost no difference regarding the efficacy on seizures, it is rather the profile of comorbidities and possible (positive and negative) side effects that will allow to select the best antiepileptic drug for each specific clinical situation, permitting a patient-tailored approach.
