New Medications in the Treatment of Pediatric Seizure Disorders


School nurses are being asked to give several different types of anti-seizure medications to students during school hours. This is bringing up many questions about what these medications are, how they work, what the side-effects are, and what forms of these drugs are approved for use. Specific school districts have their own policies regarding the use of these drugs, however, some general issues regarding the administration of these medications are discussed in this presentation.
