Ethosuximide Antidepressant : Zarontin
Brand Name : Zarontin
Ethosuximide (ESM) is used commonly as a first-line therapy for typical absence seizures occurring in primary generalized epilepsy syndromes. However, atypical absence is more common in the developmentally disabled population. Although ESM may be effective against atypical absence, the common association with other seizures (e.g., atonic, myoclonic, generalized tonic-clonic) that do not respond to ESM renders it a less-than-optimal choice for treating such patients.
