Several anticonvulsants are found among the drugs implicated as a cause of DILE, such as CBZ, phenytoin, ethosuximide, trimethadione, primidone, valproic acid, and zonisamide.
In contrast, ethosuximide suppressed 60% of seizure activity at exposures associated with the optimal human dose.

Ethosuximide, indicated specifically for absence seizures, again was hardly used in these patients, probably because absence seizure was not diagnosed in any of the patients.

Ethosuximide and valproate are the only antiepileptic drugs with proven efficacy.
Pharmacotherapy of epilepsy includes phenytoin, carbamazepine, valproate, ethosuximide, phenobarbital, benzodiazepines, vigabatrin, and gabapentin; however their use is restricted based on certain severe adverse effects such as hypersensitivity, sedation, megaloblastic anaemia, and teratogenic effect [5].

Therefore, although some nonselective T-type blockers such as ethosuximide or mibefradil can reverse both tactile hypersensitivity and thermal hyperalgesia in various pain models [260, 261], development of subtype-specific antagonists of T-type channels is desirable.
