    Hey man! Drug of choice for absence seizure is Ethosuximide.
    Sodium Valproate is reserved for mixed seizures.

    Valproic Acid and Derivatives ( Sodium Valproate , Divalproex Sodium ) can be used as sole and adjunctive therapy in treating simple and complex absence seizures and adjunctively in patients with multiple seizure types that include absence seizures.

    Ethosuximide can also be used.

    Mech of Na valproate.
    1. Delays recovery of Na channels...
    2. Inhibits low threshould Ca+ t-currents
    3. Inhibits enzyme GABA transaminases and succinyl semialdehyde dehydrogenases..(both of which degrades GABA.. so increse GABA)
    4. Stimulate enz Glutamate decarboxylase..so decreases glutamate and converts it to GABA
    5. Decrease uptake of excitatory amino acids in brain.

    Mech of Ethosuximide.
    1. Inhibits low threshould Ca+ t-currents.

    thats all..
