Epilepsy drug and eye problems

Vigabatrin (Sabril) causes eye problems in over 40 per cent of those prescribed it, a study shows (Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry 2002;73:327). Researchers from Liverpool assessed 98 patients treated with vigabatrin between 1989 and 2001. Vision was abnormal in 64 cases and in 42 cases (43 per cent) no cause other than a history of taking vigabatrin could be identified.
