Companies in the Anticonvulsants Market research Resorting to Product Innovation to Stay Ahead in the Game by 2016-2026

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Anticonvulsants, also commonly known as antiepileptic drugs or antiseizure drugs are a diverse group of pharmacology agents used in the treatment of epileptic seizures. Epilepsy is a chronic disorder resulting in repeated and unprovoked seizures. Epileptic seizures are commonly referred as convulsions. Anticonvulsants are mainly used for treatment of epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are caused by disturbance in the electrical activity of the brain. In addition, anticonvulsants are also used in treatment of bipolar disorder and in neuropathic pain management.

Anyone could potentially have a single epileptic seizure at some point in their lives. This is not the same as having epilepsy, which is a tendency to have seizures that start in the brain. Epilepsy can affect people of any age group. Though brain injury, brain cancer, drug and alcohol misuse and stroke are some of the reasons for epileptic seizures, the exact reason for convulsions is not known. Some of the common symptoms which occur before convulsions include, visual loss, strange feeling, nausea, numbness in body parts, headache and racing thoughts.

Anticonvulsants Market: Drivers and Restraints

Increasing awareness about the anticonvulsants available in the market, patent expiration of many blockbuster drugs are some of the major factors that are driving the global anticonvulsants market towards growth. There are now 24 antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) approved for use in epilepsy in the US by FDA. Moreover, three trends involving consumption of AEDs have become clinically important and must be considered by all who treat patients with epilepsy. These trends include issues of generic substitution of AEDs, pharmacogenomics predicting serious adverse events in certain ethnic populations, and the issue of the suicide risk involving the entire class of AEDs. While, high costs and unavailability of convenient dosage forms of both generic and branded anticonvulsants are restraining the growth of novel therapies in the anticonvulsants market.
