Harm concerns linked to youth epilepsy treatment

Thursday June 13th, 2019

Treatment guidelines for young people with epilepsy could be reviewed after a Swedish study found a group of drugs is linked to an increased risk of suicidal behaviour.

The number of prescriptions for gabapentinoids has risen steeply over the past 15 years, but research published in The BMJ warns that there are heightened risks among 15-24-year-olds taking them.

Although previous studies have linked gabapentinoids to suicidal behaviour and overdose-related deaths, findings have been inconsistent there is little data on longer-term harms.
