Moscow State Medical University of Dentistry The authors consider the specific features of epilepsy in middle-aged and elderly patients: a preponderance of focal symptomatic and cryptogenic epilepsies, a frequent combination with concomitant mental and somatic diseases, and a relative efficacy of small-dose antiepileptic drugs (AED). Choice of therapy is noted to depend on the form of epilepsy/type of seizures, comorbidity and used medicines. A major focus is on the use of basic AEDs R carbamazepine and valproates. Data on the promise for using depakine chronosphere in middle-aged and elderly
patients are given.
