different epilepsies are not illustrated or discussed as an EEG can only be done in Nairobi. As the drugs used in treating patients with epilepsy may be dispensed for years, it is necessary to know a few facts about these medicines. Although the side-effects and interactions with other drugs are not always understood or predictable, these actions must be known by everyone dealing with these drugs. General information about these actions is given, while the individual anticonvulsants are discussed in detail in Appendix B. However, the therapeutic blood levels of the various medicines are not mentioned as they are not routinely determined in Kenya. vii FIRST EDITION INTRODUCTION AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks are due to Professor H. Meinardi (Instituut voor Epilepsie bestrijding, Heemstede), for his continuous advice and comments, and my colleagues L.T. Oei and J.C. Doelman (Epilepsiecentrum Kempenhaeghe, Heeze) in the Netherlands, for their help and for providing the necessary references. I also thank the following colleagues in Kenya who read the manuscript and made

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
