A potential role for felbamate
in TSC- and NF1-related epilepsy: a case report and review of the literature.
There were no further additional new seizure medications until the 1990's until Felbatol (Felbamate
) was released and then there was an explosion of research and development of newer seizure medications in the late 1990's, and a number of newer seizure medications have come to market ever since.
Several new anticonvulsants like vigabatrin, lamotrigine, gabapentin, topiramate, felbamate
, rufinamide, and levetiracetam have been recently introduced in clinical practices.

This edition has new drugs, including aclidinium bromide, felbamate
, icosapent ethyl, linaclotide, peginesatide acetate, perampanel, rotigotine, and teriflunomide, and updated group monographs for antipsychotic agents, benzodiazepenes, calcium channel blocking agents, estrogens, macrolides, opioid analgesics, proton pump inhibitors, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and serotonin 5-HT1 receptor agonists.
Sleep disorders are common in patients with TSC (Krueger & Franz, 2008; van Eeghen et al., 2011) and may occur as a primary neurobehavioral problem because of poorly controlled or subclinical seizure activity or epileptic encephalopathy or because of side effects from anticonvulsant medication such as vigabatrin, felbamate
, or lamotrigine (Krueger & Franz, 2008; Prather & de Vries, 2004).
