All reported cases of drug overdoses with AEDs from 1996 to 2000 were reviewed. Data was provided by the National Poisons Information Centre, Beaumont Hospital and the Central Statistics Office. Medical records from Beaumont Hospital were reviewed in specific cases of serious drug toxicities. An extensive review of published literature reviewing the safety profile of these AEDs was performed and medical literature retrieved from the databases of the pharmaceutical industry was similarly reviewed.
