Abstract

Anticonvulsant and psychotropic drugs may need to be prescribed in combination for at least two reasons (i) psychiatric problems are not uncommon in patients with epilepsy and (ii) a number of anticonvulsants are increasingly used in the management of psychiatric disorders. Interactions between these drugs occur frequently. Clinically important examples include the stimulation of psychotropic drug metabolism by carbamazepine, phenytoin and barbiturates, the inhibition of the metabolism of antiepileptic drugs by certain neuroleptics or antidepressants, and the occurrence of potentially adverse interactions resulting from potentiation or antagonism of effects at pharmacodynamic level.
