Worldwide prevalence of the active epilepsy ranges from 4 to 5 per 1000 population. in india, the prevalence rate of epilepsy ranges between 4.15 and 7.03 per 1000 population. Epilepsy adversely affects the psycho-social status and quality of life of patients. Almost any type of brain pathology can cause epilepsy. Our study shows that clobazam and levetiracetem was the anti-epileptic drug preferred in majority of the epilepsy patients.
