Understanding Antiepileptic Drugs enhances patient knowledge and to acts as a facilitator to fill a significant gap in patient-physician communication in the field of epilepsy. There are several studies which show evidence that compliance in taking medication is absolutely crucial for successful medical treatment. A precondition for compliance, in addition to a trusting patient-physician relationship, is the ability to understand the medication under discussion and to be competent to be able to ask the right questions of your doctor. The ultimate goal should be to make the patient the expert of their condition. Patients often feel overwhelmed by the usual product monograph and they can become lost in complex information they do not understand or know how to prioritize.
