We studied 200 patients of idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) diagnosed by EEG criteria in our tertiary care hospital (Sri Guru Ram Rai Institute of Medical & Health Sciences, Dehradun, UK, India) from June,2012 to May, 2015. 164 (82%) patients were diagnosed IGE. When history and records were checked 30% patients were taking broad spectrum AED, 35% were on specific AED, 51% were on nonspecific AED while 9.5% patients were on combination of AED. 39.21% patients on nonspecific AED were well controlled of seizures and 60.78% were poorly controlled. When we changed the medicine to broad-spectrum AEDs, 50.82% became well controlled.
