DRG epidemiologists estimate that 40% of epilepsy patients experience generalized-onset seizures (GOS). The most commonly prescribed early-line treatments for GOS are older antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), such as valproic acid, levetiracetam, topiramate, and lamotrigine.To date, perampanel is the only third-generation AED approved for generalized epilepsy. Neurologists consider many factors when choosing among the numerous first-, second-, and third-generation AEDs and must make adjustments throughout a patient’s disease course to achieve optimal seizure control. Understanding the evolving journey of epilepsy patients with GOS provides important context about the complex, saturated, and heavily generic drug market that developers of new AEDs will enter, should they pursue an expanded labeling for GOS. For the first time, our 2019 Treatment Algorithms series offers this GOS segmentation, as well as a companion study on partial-onset seizures (POS).
