Medical Comorbidity in Epilepsy

Kimberly L. Pargeon, Sheryl R. Haut

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Patients with epilepsy frequently have comorbid medical conditions that can significantly affect quality of life as well as the treatment of their seizures. These comorbid conditions may coexist with epilepsy related to a common pathogenesis; they may arise as a direct result of epilepsy treatment; or they may be unrelated to the epilepsy but complicate its treatment. This chapter briefly discusses some of the interactions between epilepsy and its treatments with some of the more common comorbid conditions, including migraine, vascular disease, bone disease, reproductive disorders, and metabolic disorders.
