Dear friends i am a new staff in neuro department i have doubt.Why should we use two anticonvulsant at same time.Here i happened to see citicholine and phenytoin are using for a cva patient.Whether this is recommandable
Im not familiar with "citicholine", although a quick google search found its more for memory problems? I could be wrong. But, we use multiple seizure drugs all the time. There are different types of seizures and sometimes one med will not cover them all. We had a pt that was post op crani, rebled, evacuated and was kept intubated for seizures. She was seizing thru propofol (65mcgs/kg/min) Dilantin, and keppra. She was eventually put into a pentobarbital coma while we added phenobarbital and topamax. She eventually came out of pentobarbital while her other levels came up and follows commands x4 and extubated.
