Prescribing anti-epileptic drugs for people with epilepsy and intellectual disability (CR206 Oct 2017)

This report addresses the extremely important area of epilepsy in the field of intellectual disability (ID), also known as learning disability.

Epilepsy and ID are two conditions that carry stigma and can lead to social isolation. An individual who experiences both these problems faces huge challenges.

This report aims to provide epileptologists, psychiatrists, doctors and clinicians working with people with ID and epilepsy an overview of good practice prescribing.

Its focus is on using current evidence and applying it to support practical prescribing for people with ID.
