Epilepsy in the Elderly

Elderly patients may experience seizures for the first time as a result of a stroke, brain tumor, or other brain abnormality. They may also have childhood or early adulthood onset epilepsy that continues later in life.  In these patients, long-term monitoring for anti-epileptic drug side effects is critical.
