Disabling tremor induced by long-term use of sodium valproate and lamotrigine: Case report.
 

Author(s): Zhong-Fang He, Jun Chen, Chao-Ning Zhou, Zhi Rao, Xiao-Hua Wang

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 Nov;96(47):e8711.

 

Sodium valproate (VPA) and lamotrigine (LTG) are widely used antiepileptic drugs, disabling postural, and action tremors after using LTG with VPA were reported in 1993. However, in this study, we describe a patient in whom disabling resting-type tremor induced by 2-year use of VPA and LTG.
