Aim: The negative effect of antiepileptic drugs on bone health has been previously documented. However, which antiepileptic drug is safer in regard to bone health is still questionable. Our aims were to investigate the bone mineral density alterations in pediatric patients who receive antiepileptic medication for a minimum of two years and to compare the results of these drugs.
