Epilepsy Foundation Calls on Drug Enforcement Agency to Improve Review Process for New Treatments
Date:8/20/2013

garding the serious problem of prescription drug abuse, but an open ended regulatory barrier for new products that have met FDA standards for efficacy and safety is not the answer. The Epilepsy Foundation is concerned about the lack of transparency and certainty in the DEA review process and welcomes changes that would bring hope to those living with epilepsy, especially those currently living with uncontrolled seizures. 

The Foundation recently sent a letter to DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart requesting that the agency review its policies, processes, and timelines so patients and their physicians can know with more certainty a timeline for availability of these needed treatments. Such a timeline would provide hope and certainty, and could also provide more safety and stability for access to FDA approved therapies.

About Epilepsy  
When a person has two or more unprovoked seizures, they have epilepsy, which affects more than 2 million people in the U.S. and 65 million people worldwide. This year, another 150,000 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with epilepsy. 

Epilepsy Foundation  
The Epilepsy Foundation, a national nonprofit with affiliated organizations throughout the United States, has led the fight against seizures since 1968. The Foundation's goals are to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences and to prevent, control and cure epilepsy through services, education, advocacy and research so not another moment is lost to seizures.
