Abstract
Several studies have reported that commonly used antiepileptic drugs like phenytoin, and carbamazepine increase serum High Density Lipoproteins Cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, while some others documented no such effect. Further, some researchers also observed that valproic acid and other newer antiepileptic drugs like lamotrigine and levetiracetam has no influence on serum lipid profile. The present study was planned to assess and compare serum lipid profile and liver function in children on commonly used antiepileptic drugs like carbamazepine and valproic acid attending Neurology OPD of a tertiary care hospital in Pune, India compared to normal subjects.
