Abstract

We studied in a population of 16 patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy, the effects of sodium valproate on EEG background activity, on ictal and interictal epileptiform abnormalities and on seizures occurrence. Our data demonstrated that VPA is a drug which seems to not modify the EEG background activity and not to alter the mental processes. In additional, although it reduced the seizures frequency, does not influence the level of IEA.
