  2. 2. Definition • A seizure is a paroxysmal event due to abnormal, excessive, hypersynchronous discharges from an aggregate of CNS neurons. • Epilepsy describes a condition in which a person has recurrent seizures due to a chronic, underlying process.
  3. 3. Partial seizures
  4. 4. Simple partial seizures
  5. 5. Complex partial seizures
  6. 6. Partial seizures with secondary generalization
  7. 7. Primarily generalized seizures

  10. 10. Tonic Seizures o o When a tonic seizure occurs, the muscles in the body contract and the entire body stiffens And it often causes the person to fall down Atonic seizures o o o Characterised by loss of postural tone lasting 1-2 secs Consciousness is briefly impaired No post ictal confusion Myoclonic seizures o Characterised by sudden and brief contraction of one part of the body or entire body Unclassified Seizures o Seizures that occur in neonates and infants

  32. 32. Pharmaceutical Care Plan: Subjective Evidence Objective Evidence For seizures • Seizures since 2 days • PmHx: K/c/o seizure disorder since 8 years For seizures • Nil For xeroderma pigmentosum • Photosensitivity • Burning sensation and lesion on nose and malar area • Hypopigmentation • Irritation and redness of eyes For xeroderma pigmentosum • Nil
  33. 33. Goals of therapy: For seizures • To accurately diagnose the patient's seizure type and epilepsy syndrome and determine the etiology. • To identify and eliminate patient-specific seizure precipitants. • To select optimal anticonvulsant therapy based on seizure type, epilepsy syndrome, patient age, sex, and concomitant medical conditions. • To minimize the use of poly-drug therapy and sedating antiepileptic drugs whenever possible. • To monitor for clinical and laboratory evidence of adverse effects of drug therapy. • To identify and address patient concerns regarding the effect of epilepsy and its management on daily activities, employment, and social interactions.
  34. 34. For XP • To protect patient from sunlight and to reduce damaging effect of UV rays on skin
  35. 35. Goals achieved: • Seizure was controlled by day 5
  36. 36. General treatment options For seizures Seizure type First line agents Second line agents Partial seizures Carbamazepine, phenytoin, lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, valproic acid Levetiracetam, topiramate, gabapentin, phenobarbital, primidone, felbamate Tonic clonic seizures Valproic acid, lamotrigine, topiramate Zonisamide, penytoin, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenobarbital, primidone, felbamate Absence seizures Valproic acid, ethosuxcimide Lamotrigine, clonazepam Atypical seizures Atonic siezures Myoclonic seizures Valproic acid, lamotrigine, topiramate Clonazepam, felbamate For XP: sunscreen, vit D supplements, emollients, retinoid preparations, T4N5 lotion
  37. 37. Specific treatment options For seizures: GTCS: Valproic acid, lamotrigine, topiramate Multivitamins: vit B complex, vit D & calcium supplementation For XP: avoid exposure to sunlight, sunscreen, emollients, vit D preparations
  38. 38. Monitoring parameters: • EEG • Electrolytes: Ca, Mg • Serum glucose • Neurological status DISEASE SPECIFIC • LFTs • CBC • Patients adherence to the medications DRUG SPECIFIC
  39. 39. Problems identified: • Drug interactions: valproic acid and phenytoin ( level of phenytoin) phenytoin and lamotrigine ( level of lamotrigine) pantoprazole and clobazam ( effect of clobazam) • Concomitant use of magaldrate and pantoprazole • Phenytoin and clobazam not the apppropriate treatment options for GTCS, moreover phenytoin should not be used in young patients who require long term therapy with phenytoin • Use of protein powder • Concomitant use of phenytoin and fosphenytoin together for 3 days
  40. 40. Patient counseling about seizure:
  41. 41. Patient counseling about the common signs:
  42. 42. Lifestyle modifications • Care takers were informed to give stress free environment • They were advised to monitor him during sleep hours to identify seizure activity • They were asked to visit their doctor regularly • They were informed the benefits of relaxation techniques like deep breathing and meditation • They were told to provide him with healthy diet, including plenty of whole grains, fresh vegetables, and fruits • They were explained the benefit of high fat, no sugar, low protein diet • They were informed to make him wear protective clothes and avoid sun exposure as far as possible
