Do you know what medication switching means? It's switching from one manufacturer's formulation of an antiepileptic drug (AED) to another. The switch can be between different manufacturer's versions of the same generic drug, from generic to the brand-name drug, or from the brand-name drug to a generic. It can also be caused by a switch from one manufacturer's formulation of its antiepileptic drug to a new formulation of the same drug.
