ABSTRACT

The aim of the study is to compare the efficacy of levetiracetam and clobazam individually and in combination in the management of generalised tonic-clonic seizures. An observational study was carried among patients admitted in the neurology department attending OPD of tertiary care hospital, Hyderabad. The study was carried out for a period of 6 months from September 2019 to February 2020. A total of 91 case sheets were analyzed during that period. A total of 91 case sheets were collected among which 54% were male and 46% were female. It was found that 10-20 years of age group made up the highest percentage of total population consisting upto 33% of the study population and the least populated group was 40-50 and 50-60 age group. Moreover, the results demonstrate that combination shows more efficacy than the individual drugs (levetiracetam and clobazam). This study clearly demonstrates that awareness of generalized tonic-clonic seizures in general the risk factors, signs and symptoms among hospitalized patients is inadequate. The findings of our study may also encourage health-care providers to deliver more education to patients and Patient Health Organizations about Generalized tonic-clonic seizures and their risk-factors, signs and symptoms and preventive measures.

Keywords: Tonic-clonic seizures, levetiracetam, clobazam, efficacy.
